Carrie Gonzalez

Southwest Research Institute
Principal Engineer
Carrie Gonzalez is a computer scientist with experience in software design. She is one of the primary authors of the graphically oriented multi-mission / multi-instrument science data analysis system used for space physics analysis at Southwest Research Institute. This suite of tools is capable of displaying data from different space science data formats simultaneously in a singular presentation. She has been actively involved with the integration and test software for various instruments for multiple space missions. In order to deliver scientifically valid and useful data sets for various instrument teams, she has played a role in the review of sensor packet definitions in order to identify all data products that are to be extracted and properly reported, validated and stored in the data files being archived for the instrument, which are also made available for long-term archival and public dissemination. Ms. Gonzalez is one member of a team of individuals that have been granted a Space Act Award for two NASA Tech Brief Publications that briefly describe the IDFS (Instrument Data File Set) data storage format and an analysis system that is built around data that has been stored in IDFS format. She is the recipient of two Certifications of Recognition for the creative development of technically significant software that has been accepted and approved for dissemination to the public by NASA.
