Division of Polar Programs — Polar CyberInfrastructure Program Director


Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Marco Tedesco has joined the Division of Polar Programs as the Program Director for Polar Cyberinfrastructure. Cyberinfrastructure is an important enabler of research generally and so investments in the polar regions are a priority for the Division. Information about the program can be found at the following URL: http://www.arcus.org/witness-the-arctic/2013/1/article/19613

Dr. Tedesco comes from the City College of New York where he is Associate Professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. His background in remote sensing of snow covered regions and his recent work aimed at improving estimates of surface mass balance of the Greenland Ice Sheet gives him a particularly useful perspective for leading our effort in cyberinfrastructure. Marco’s responsibilities cover both Arctic and Antarctic aspects of the Division of Polar Programs so we hope you will reach out to him for your cyberinfrastructure interests no matter where your geographic interests lie. Marco can be reached at 703-292-7120 or mtedesco@nsf.gov

We are delighted to have Marco in Polar Programs to help advance our cyberinfrastructure interests and hope you will join us in welcoming him to NSF.
