Rachel Moore is a Center Lead for the NASA Applied Sciences DEVELOP Program Office at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. She has an undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and Policy, with a concentration in Wildlife Ecology, from the University of Maryland, College Park. She is currently pursing a Graduate Degree in Geospatial Information Sciences, also at the University of Maryland. Since 2009, she has worked with the DEVELOP Program as a student researcher and a Goddard DEVELOP Center Lead. In her project management role, she oversees the functioning of the DEVELOP Program at GSFC. Her duties include creation of project proposals, hiring and managing of intern research teams, relations with GSFC and the DEVELOP National program office, and relations with partner agencies and organizations. Additionally, she participates in DEVELOP research involving ecological forecasting and invasive species modeling. The Applied Sciences Program, part of NASA's Earth Science Division, focuses on conducting projects that utilize NASA Earth science research and satellite observations, model predictive capabilities, and technology to demonstrate operational decision-making benefits in a variety of application areas. Leveraging the national investment in Earth satellite observation systems, the Applied Sciences Program seeks to increase the benefits to society through the widest practical use of NASA research and to bridge the gap between NASA technology and the public. The NASA Applied Sciences DEVELOP Program is a NASA Science Mission Directorate training and development program that extends the benefits of NASA Earth science research and technology to society. Consistent with the goals of the Applied Sciences Program, DEVELOP students conduct research in areas that examine how NASA technology can benefit partner organizations and construct projects that focus on the practical application of NASA's Earth Science research results. Every project is carefully selected to address at least one of the Applied Sciences focus areas, to use NASA's Earth Science satellite observations, and to meet partners' needs. DEVELOP is unique in that students focus on community concerns and public policy impacts in their research. Additional information on DEVELOP can be found at http://develop.larc.nasa.gov.
