Curriculum Vitae:

Kristen Fahy

Kristen Fahy is a member of the Tropospheric Composition Group in the Earth Science Section at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Kristen received her Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. She then received her M.Ed. and followed that by teaching physics and interning in the summers at JPL working with exoplanet spectroscopy data. She enjoyed JPL and California so much, she moved across the country to work full-time at JPL. She is currently a science systems engineer in and works on a variety of climate modeling projects including the SRTD Linkages in the Earth System and Climate Modelling Alliance (CliMA) among others.


Education
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Physics – Rutgers University (2014)
  • Master’s Degree in Physics Education – Rutgers University (2015)

Research Interests

Using systems engineering practices, procedures, and tools to optimize efficiency across a broad range of climate modelling projects.


Projects

TES Icon TES
TES (Tropospheric Emission Spectrometer) is one of four science instruments aboard NASA's Aura satellite, which was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California on July 15, 2004.

CliMA Icon CliMA
The Climate Modeling Alliance (CliMA) is a coalition of scientists and engineers, who are building an Earth system model that leverages advances in the computational and data sciences to learn from Earth observations from space and the ground.


Selected Awards
  • JPL Team Bonus Award as a member of the CASE Step 2 Core Proposal  Team (2019)
