About Kyle (he/they)

Kyle is in the process of transferring as a rising junior from Front Range Community College to the University of Michigan. Up until the Geo-Launchpad internship, they were pursuing an associate’s degree in Art History. After taking an environmental science course, they decided that a career in the subject was right for them. Upon transfer to the University of Michigan, he will pursue a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science with hopes to go after a master’s degree in a more specific field. As a Geo-Launchpad intern, Kyle will work with Marianne Okal (an engineer at UNAVCO) and Taryn Toby (a fellow Geo-Launchpad intern) to test the accuracy and precision of GNSS receivers conducting RTK surveys.
