After completing an undergraduate degree in Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Cape Town, she pursued a Doctorate of Science in engineering, focused on microprocessor design for Scientific High Performance Computing at the same. This led to her continuing to work in the domain between technology and Applied Science as a post-doctoral scholar focused on Big Data tools for Earth Science at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. Most recently Jane has taken up the position of Data Science Technologist at the University of Notre Dame's Centre for Research Computing.  Currently, Jane is the co-chair for RDA’s Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems’ Data Interest Group, and the Earth Science Information Partners [ESIP] Drone Cluster alongside Lindsey Barbieri from the University of Vermont.  To learn more about the community building standards for science drones, read a recent report authored by Jane and Lindsey titled “Drones: Emerging Scientific Tools of-the-trade."
