BS Chemical Engineering, University of Maryland

Devon began her career interning at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, where she validated aerosol data from MODIS satellite instrument through analytical comparisons with ground-truth data, determined factors affecting aerosol data, and corrected for bias with neural networks and support vector machines. Devon has an associated publication titled Machine Learning and Bias Correction of MODIS Aerosol Optical Depth (IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters. Vol. 6. No. 4. October 2009), which won the 2010 IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society Letters Prize Paper Award. She has been a highly sought-after project team member from her first days at ACE, and has utilized her strong engineering skills to assist with projects and customers. She manages projects and customer accounts for continuity, and has in-depth systems knowledge through cultivating long-term customer relationships. She strives to use existing infrastructure to improve system data integrity, reduce project expenses, and deliver high-quality control systems. Devon’s demonstrated technical skills make her a positive role model for younger engineers. She strives to be a positive role model for women in engineering by maintaining a position that is highly technical.

Fun Fact: Devon hiked the 32.5, 9,510 ft. elevation gain Pemigewasset Loop in New Hampshire over three days while fighting against unpredictable weather.
