I interned as a software engineer focused on improving WeatherPower, an app that forecasts daily wind and solar energy generated in various states, media markets, counties and congressional districts. It is used by meteorologists and journalists across the nation to aid their research and analysis. I added new features to WeatherPower, including rankings that enable the users to sort regions in ascending order based on the absolute power generated and power generated per capita. I also worked with a team of developers to implement automatic updates for the wind turbine and solar capacity databases. During my internship at Climate Central, I got the opportunity to work with the sea-level rise team and I developed mobile prototypes to work with various Climate Central products. Through this internship, I learned more about the potential of sustainable energy and familiarized myself with new technologies relevant to my major and career path.
