Employee Spotlight: Jan Sitterson
Meet ORAU Employee Jan Sitterson. Jan is an ORAU contractor working in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Research and Development (ORD) as a watershed modeler. In June, she gave two presentations on her research with the EPA at the International Environmental Modeling and Software Conference in Fort Collins, CO. She’s excited to announce that her papers for the conference proceedings were accepted! You can view her papers at the links below.
- A survey of Precipitation data for Environmental Modeling
- An overview of Rainfall-Runoff Model Types
She is also considering going back to school for her Masters or PhD. “Once I complete my degree I would like my job to travel around (the country or world) and solve environmental problems relating to water resources. My dream job would be to work for the United Nations Environmental Program which does the description above, but that is quite a dream. I am pretty sure there are other environmental companies (environmental engineering companies) that do something similar, so that is where I would like to start after I finish my degree and potentially work up to the UN.” Dream big Jan!
