Master of Science in Software Engineering alumna Claire Porter not only works with some of the most powerful computers available today, but she is on the cutting-edge of polar climate change research working on a project that has gained the attention of former President Barack Obama.

Porter works at University of Minnesota’s Polar Geospatial Center (PGC), a research group that provides geospatial support to scientists and logistics personnel in the Antarctic and the Arctic. Through an interdisciplinary collaboration that includes the National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the PGC is working to release 3-D digital elevation models of the entire Arctic in 2017. The project, called ArcticDEM, was formed following an Executive Order from President Obama that called for better coordination of national efforts in the Arctic as a way to better respond to threats posed by climate change.
