Amber Jean Kuss M.Sc. is currently the Assistant Center Lead for the NASA Ames DEVELOP Program, and has been with the program since summer of 2010. This past summer, Miss Kuss took the role of team lead for a research project that studied the use of GRACE satellite data for estimating changes in groundwater storage in the Central Valley aquifer. Miss Kuss is a recent graduate from San Francisco State University in the Department of Geosciences. Her thesis examined the effects of climate variability on groundwater resources in the United States, and her research interests include groundwater and remote sensing techniques, environmental education, and wetland restoration. Miss Kuss also has experience as Staff Geologist for Environmental Resources Management (ERM) and as a lecturer for Oceanography at San Francisco State University.

Todd King is associated with the Earth and Space Sciences department at the University of California, Los Angeles. Originally planning on becoming a geophysicist, he ultimately became part of the space physics group at UCLA. Todd has been involved in the design and development for NASA's Planetary Data System, the Space Physics Archive Search and Extract (SPASE) metadata model and NASA's Virtual Magnetospheric Observatory.

Dr. Susan Owen is a research geophysicist at Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Principal Investigator of the Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis for Earthquakes (ARIA-EQ) project, a collaborative effort between JPL and Caltech. Her area of expertise is using GPS data to study earthquakes and volcanoes.

Sean conducts and coordinates STI's research and development at the intersection between wildland fires and air quality. He develops innovative tools and techniques for understanding how smoke impacts the environment and how those impacts can be reduced. He applies his expertise in satellite remote sensing to advance the state-of-the-science and enjoys finding the connections between disparate lines of research. Sean's love of play drives him to seek out new ideas, challenges, and opportunities both personally and professionally.

Rama Nemani is a research scientist with the Earth science division of NASA Ames Research Center, where he directs the Ecological Forecasting Laboratory. His interests include developing tools and techniques in a collaborative computing environment for producing ecological nowcasts and forecasts.

Lee Johnson is a remote sensing scientist with California State University, Monterey Bay. He is jointly affiliated with the Earth Science Division of NASA Ames.

Lawrence Friedl serves as the Director of the Applied Sciences Program within NASA's Earth Science Division. The Program supports efforts to discover and demonstrate innovative and practical applications of Earth science by public and private organizations'. He has been with the NASA Applied Sciences Program since 2002. He has served as the Program Manager for Air Quality applications along with several other applications themes (Coastal Management, Climate, Water Resources).

What is Ignite?

Ignite is a geek event in over 100 cities worldwide. At the events Ignite presenters share their personal and professional passions, using 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds for a total of just five minutes.
