This summer, our Geography MS Student Morgan Steckler is working with Maxar as an intern. Maxar is a space technology company headquartered in Westminster, Colorado, United States, specializing in manufacturing communication, Earth observation, radar, and on-orbit servicing satellites, satellite products, and related services.
Here is what Morgan shared with us:
“This summer, I worked remotely for Maxar Technologies as a data science intern on the Kestrel team. I analyzed maritime vessel loitering behaviors through independent research and scripted processing of remotely sensed data. This internship greatly improved my understanding and appreciation of the private space and intelligence industry, efficient and effective teamwork, and the colorful role of a data scientist.”
