Michelle Guy

I architect, manage, and build highly specialized state-of-the-art scientific software systems. These systems are one of a kind and serve to bring the unique science of the GHSC into real-time operations and produce products for worldwide consumption by scientific communities, emergency responders, government agencies and the general public.
