About Bobby

Bobby is currently completing his undergraduate degree at the University of North Texas where he studies documentary production and biology. His participation in the UNAVCO Student Internship Program (USIP) allowed him to practice science communication in a field well outside the scope of his own academic experience, an invaluable exercise in translating complex concepts into easily digestible material. Over the course of the summer, Bobby worked on several video projects. He produced a short video for UNAVCO’s Geoscience Career Spotlight series featuring UNAVCO polar field engineer Annie Zaino, with the goal of reaching geoscience undergrads with the stories of professional role models representing both diversity and non-academic career paths in the geosciences. He also created a video highlighting the capabilities and applications of the terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) equipment and data services offered by UNAVCO, intended to reach scientists considering utilizing the TLS for their own research.
