Dr. Kathleen Dejwakh

Dr. Kathleen DejwakhAs the CERES Data Management Team (DMT) lead, Katie Dejwakh oversees data production, from software development to data distribution. In doing so, she ensures the integrity and availability of data products. Dr. Dejwakh coordinates with her team consisting of members with a wide-range of expertise.

The CERES Data Management Team (DMT) is responsible for testing and integration of CERES production software and for generating data products. The DMT ensures quality, validity, and availability of data products and associated documentation in support of public distribution of data products. All software used to produce CERES Level 1 – 3 data products is written, maintained and configured by the DMT. The DMT also maintains workflow automation and configuration management tools that facilitate data production.
