Who are you?
Hi! I'm Katherine. I graduated from Olin College
with a degree in Systems Engineering.
Right now I am a web application developer at the Center for Homeland Defense and Security
Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, CA.
Why radiant radon?
According to webelements.com
, "When cooled below the freezing point,
radon exhibits a brilliant phosphorescence which becomes yellow as the temperature is lowered and orange-red
at the temperature of liquid air." It sounded really cool when I was fifteen and in search of a new handle.
What else are you interested in?
I am interested in oceanography, particularly primary productivity and ocean color.
I also like web design and development–I built the citizen-science
as an MBARI intern and continue to be involved with the project.
I became very interested in machine learning after working on a project trying to predict when algal blooms would happen based on historical data,
so I took a machine learning class at NPS and am working my way through this book
I like making bean bags
Sometimes I put stuff on my head
Where did you learn to balance things on your head?
At home when I was little, I guess? I don't remember when/where I learned. It's not that difficult
Can I email you?
Of course! My email is radiantradon at gmail.
