Carlos Ramirez-Reyes, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Data Services Coordinator Remote Sensing and GIS data, Reproducible data analysis and visualization in R


As the Data Services Coordinator, I work with students, faculty and staff across campus in all aspects of research data management: from project planning to data archiving. I provide consultations on data literacy, research data lifecycle, data manipulation, data visualization, and reproducible analysis in R.  Given my background in quantitative, interdisciplinary science, landscape ecology and land systems, I also provide support in GIS and Remote Sensing research projects.
