Heather McFarlin
Data Specialist

Heather’s duties as a data specialist include supervising the analyst team, assessing the quality and integrity of our data, documenting data issues and creating weekly reports on any station issues, working with the field and systems teams to investigate data and sensor issues, processing earthquakes detected by AEC seismic stations, occasionally visiting seismic stations for maintenance, and also assisting with outreach events for local community and on social media. When not working, Heather enjoys spending time with her family, watching and attending sporting events (Go Fairbanks Ice Dogs!), and reading novels.
