Skye is a graduate student at Boston University, where she is pursuing her Master’s in Remote Sensing. She is interested in the ways that mapping and modeling can be used to create a more equitable and sustainable world. Skye is passionate about creating space in the sciences for sustainable research methods and underrepresented groups in all research, but especially in Earth and astronomical science. 

Prior to joining the team, Skye worked as a gemologist in New York City, and as an environmental consultant in Virginia. She received her BS in geology and astronomy from the University of Michigan, where she worked on several different geological and astronomical research projects. 

Skye never knows where to say that she’s from, but chooses New York and Montreal as her two home cities. When she’s not working, Skye enjoys traveling anywhere new, hiking, and playing guitar.
