Julian Dann is a first-year masters student working at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) in the International Arctic Research Center (IARC) and the Alaska Climate Adaptation Science Center (AKCASC) on snow distribution in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) as it relates to tundra health and oil & gas exploration.
Before coming to UAF, Julian worked on the Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment Arctic (NGEE-Arctic) team based out of Los Alamos National Laboratory in northern New Mexico. There he participated in a variety of projects including: analysis of synthetic aperture radar signals, fine scale mapping using UAS-borne photogrammetry and LiDAR, and understanding snow distribution patterns in small watersheds. Of particular interest to him is remote sensing, science communication, and photography.
In his free time, Julian enjoys riding bikes, climbing, camping, and downhill skiing.
