Girl Geek X Climate Dinner – August 9th in San Francisco

Girl Geek X Climate Dinner

You are invited to an evening of networking, drinks, food & discussions around ag tech & building digital solutions for farmers – join us for a Girl Geek X Climate Dinner on Thursday, August 9th in downtown San Francisco!

To help farmers answer the challenge of feeding a growing world, we are focused on helping them get their data in one place, uncover valuable field insights, and optimize their inputs. From planning in the winter to harvest in the fall, Climate FieldView helps farmers make informed decisions all year long. By combining deep experience in science, technology, and agriculture with real-world problem-solving skills, our leadership team delivers proven, data-driven solutions to farmers every day. At The Climate Corporation, we aim to help all the world’s farmers sustainably increase their productivity with digital tools. Get your ticket now for Girl Geek X Dinner!

Tracey EwartTracey Ewart, Product Design Manager, The Climate Corporation
Tracey is a Lead Product Designer and manager on Climate’s 10-person – and growing – design team. She is responsible for creating thoughtful and valuable solutions for farmers and their trusted advisors. She is passionate about finding the right mix of value, innovation and delight in the experiences she builds. Designing for farmers has been a unique challenge, but also a very meaningful one. She was previously a UX Designer at CafePress, MapQuest and (quite a while back) eToys.com. In her free time, she can be seen chasing after her kids, trail running with her dog or reading a really good book.

Beth ReidBeth Reid, Lead Data Scientist, The Climate Corporation
Beth works on the Pest and Disease risk modeling team within Geospatial Science. She leads our program on airborne transport of pathogens, currently focusing on southern rust in corn. She has previous worked in several applications of spatio-temporal modeling. Beth worked for two years on Climate’s Weather Science team and was the science lead for Climate’s in-house real-time radar pipeline used for field-level rainfall estimates. She translated specific performance needs of our key stakeholder, Climate’s Nitrogen Model, into tasks for a two-month sprint including 6 data scientists and delivered the final algorithms to engineering in time for inclusion in our 2017 product. She also developed and led the execution of a validation framework to ensure that the real-time production system rainfall estimates built by engineering would deliver rainfall estimates with the same accuracy as the research pipeline.Before Climate, Beth measured and modeled the evolution of the universe using three-dimensional maps of galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, first as a Hubble Fellow and then an inaugural Data Science Fellow at the Berkeley Institute for Data Science. She received her Ph.D. in physics from Princeton University.
