Hailey Johnson joined the Unidata software development team on August 17th, 2020. Hailey majored in Computer Science and Earth and Ocean Science at Duke University, and briefly worked as a DevOps Engineer at Microsoft before enrolling in the Geological Sciences graduate program at the University of Florida. She will receive her Ph.D. in December, 2020.
Hailey’s doctoral work focused on coastal morphology and nearshore oceanography, with minor focuses in both Computer Engineering and Educational Technology. She is excited to join Unidata because its mission fits so well with her passion for leveraging software to support the earth science community in both research and outreach.
Hailey is returning to Unidata after an internship during the summer of 2018, during which she worked on the THREDDS Data Server and built the Jupyter Notebook Viewer. As a full-time member of the Unidata team, she will be continuing working on the TDS and NetCDF-Java, and is looking forward to finding ways to make the TDS more accessible to the broader scientific community.
When not working, Hailey’s favorite activities are outdoor endurance sports, such as running, hiking, and biking; she is often joined by her Harrier hound-mix, Jordan. Hailey is also an amateur flyweight boxer. For the foreseeable future, Hailey will be working remotely from Breckenridge, CO, where she hopes to take up cross-country skiing. She is thrilled to be in Colorado and excited to return to Unidata full-time!
