Prior to QLS, Sarah completed her B.A. in Applied Mathematics at Harvard University with a focus in Data Science. Her thesis concentrated on quantitative solutions to climate change in Madagascar by modeling the relationship between land use, soil moisture, and crop health values derived from remote sensing data products. This tool improves agricultural information critical to addressing food insecurity and can theoretically be applied anywhere in the world. Prior to her thesis, she researched wind patterns related to El Niño using global climate models.
