Jessica Blunt joined the Unidata Program Center as a software development summer intern on May 20, 2019. Jessica is currently an undergraduate Meteorology student with minor concentrations in Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Oklahoma; she'll be graduating in December of 2019. This summer, she'll be focusing on producing updated and additional IDV tutorial videos for Unidata's YouTube channel, as well as working with the IDV codebase to make additions and improvements.
The Unidata Summer Internships offer undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to work with Unidata software engineers and scientists on projects drawn from a wide variety of areas in the atmospheric and computational sciences.
“I was introduced to the IDV by a classmate when I needed an isentropic analysis for a project,” says Jessica. “While I was impressed by the versatility of the software, its applications in teaching and communicating about three-dimensional physical systems were what got me really excited about the project. I'm very thankful for the opportunity to learn about, contribute to, and teach others how to use this incredibly useful tool with a great team in Boulder. ”
Away from the keyboard, Jessica plays the harp and enjoys being outside. She's looking forward to taking advantage of Boulder's hiking and bicycling opportunities.
