Personal Summary

My name is Gabriel Altieri and I am a recent graduate from the University of Redlands where I completed a B.S. Environmental Science, B.A. Economics, and a minor in GIS and Spatial Analysis. My emphasis within environmental sciences was based around Ecology, and I completed research within the San Bernardino National Forest focused around ecological impacts of wildfires. 

I have prior experience working within the water industry, mainly surrounding insights and market research, catered towards CAPEX, financial modeling, forecasting, and analysis surrounding the automotive industry. Aside from that, I have environmental research experience catered towards ecological impacts of wildfires,  looking at the changes in Above Ground Biomass (AGB), Change in Normalized Burn Ratio (dNBR), Sapling data, Regrowth efforts, and Remote Sensing data. 

I have a strong interest in climate science, carbon emissions, environmental chemistry, renewable energy, ecology, forestry, and also the intersection between the environment and the economy. I am a very driven person and am interested in a research-based opportunity preferably at a company in which I can provide a true impact to the planet in helping combat environmental issues and disasters. I also have an entrepreneurial drive and am working to deepen my knowledge of computer science properties.
