Jupiter, a provider of predictive data and analytics for climate risk and resilience, has appointed Dr. Elizabeth Barnes as an advisor to help its science team further refine their physics-informed machine learning and explainable AI for atmospheric science and climate risk.

Dr. Barnes’ topics of interest include earth system predictability, atmospheric dynamics, subseasonal-to-decadal (S2D) prediction, and data science methods for earth system research, including machine learning.

She joins Jupiter as the company continues to grow and invest in climate analytics by the private sector, the Biden administration, and countries across the planet.

Rich Sorkin, CEO of Jupiter, commented: “Libby is joining Jupiter as the company makes dramatic progress in our scientific development and commercial success.

“The world’s renewed focus on infrastructure and resilience, the ongoing strengthening of the economy, and the Biden Administration’s policies combine to make this an especially exciting time. Libby’s expertise is extremely valuable as we continue to accelerate on all fronts.”

Dr. Barnes added: “As somebody who has a passion for using big data to better understand our changing earth, it’s incredibly exciting to work with a company that’s helping companies not only understand climate change, but also prepare for it.”
