Ethan Kyzivat

Ethan Kyzivat is a PhD candidate and Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) Fellow in the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences (DEEPS) at Brown University. His research focuses on greenhouse gas emissions from northern wetlands through high-resolution mapping. This topic has led him to work on optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) remote sensing datasets acquired from airborne and UAV campaigns as part of the NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE). He has conducted hydrologic fieldwork in the Canadian boreal zone, Arizonan Sonoran desert, and the wilds of Connecticut. Ethan received his BS in Physics from Yale in 2015, where he also worked for two years as a biogeochemistry lab technician. He is honing his communication skills as a contributor to Massive Science. In addition to crunching geospatial data sets, he enjoys jazz piano, vegetable gardening, and traveling by bicycle.
