Ethan Kyzivat

Ethan Kyzivat obtained his PhD from the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences (DEEPS) at Brown University, where he was a Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) Fellow. His dissertation focused on estimating greenhouse gas emissions from northern lakes and wetlands through high-resolution mapping of lake area and aquatic vegetation. This topic led him to work on optical and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) remote sensing datasets acquired from field, airborne and UAV (drone) campaigns as part of the NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE). He also taught in Providence Public Schools through DEEPS outreach programs. Ethan received his BS in Physics from Yale in 2015, where he also worked for two years as a biogeochemistry lab technician. In addition to crunching geospatial data sets, he enjoys jazz piano, vegetable gardening, and traveling by bicycle. His next position is in Harvard’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences (EPS) as a Reginald A. Daly fellow.
