Join us for a discussion with Dr. Lindsey Heagy on open-source scientific software. Dr Heagy will provide an overview of the growing open-source scientific software ecosystem and discuss some examples of how it is enabling open, collaborative science. She will provide examples of large collaborative projects in climate science and resources developed for humanitarian projects to locate groundwater in water-stressed regions of the world.

Dr. Lindsey Heagy is an incoming Assistant Professor in the Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences Department at the University of British Columbia. Her research interests are in advancing data science and inversion techniques with geophysical data. In 2019, she was awarded the Gerald W. Hohmann Outstanding Young Scientist award for advances in simulation and inversion of electromagnetic data and promotion of an open source culture for collaborative, inclusive and reproducible research.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!
