Katie Cavanaugh ’16 joins NASA DEVELOP Program

ES graduate Katie Cavanaugh ’16 was invited to join an interdisciplinary research team at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, CA. Her position is funded through NASA’s DEVELOP program.

Consider applying to this program if you have interest in the earth sciences, GIS, and remote sensing! They accept current students, recent grads, and early career professionals.


DEVELOP, part of NASA’s Applied Sciences Program, addresses environmental and public policy issues through interdisciplinary research projects that apply the lens of NASA Earth observations to community concerns around the globe. Bridging the gap between NASA Earth Science and society, DEVELOP builds capacity in both participants and partner organizations to better prepare them to address the challenges that face our society and future generations. With the competitive nature and growing societal role of science and technology in today’s global workplace, DEVELOP is fostering an adept corps of tomorrow’s scientists and leaders.
