Born and raised in Colorado, Joe spent the early years of his life growing a strong affection for mountain living and exploration. Now a junior at the University of Washington completing a B.S. in Computer Engineering and a Minor in mathematics, Joe strives to learn about the various intersections between technology and environmental conservation. Eager to get outside for fieldwork, he joined the Mountain Hydro lab in summer 2019 where he currently works with both hardware and software for data retrieval and processing. Whenever possible, Joe enjoys skiing and climbing with friends.
