    Margaret Srinivasan came to JPL in 2000. In addition to her Manager role at the Center for Climate Sciences, she is the Surface Water & Ocean Topography (SWOT) Deputy Program Applications (DPA) Lead, the Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment Follow On (GRACE-FO) Assistant DPA Lead, and the Altimeter Applications Lead for the Jason-series ocean altimeter missions. In her DPA roles she manages programs to engage end users for mission data products and information that reflect the high value of the science data from these international collaborative missions. The objectives are to promote science data applications to current and potential operational users of Jason, Sentinel-6, SWOT and GRACE-FO data, and promote the science results of these missions for operations, policy support, and to educate and inform the public.

    Margaret began her career as an Exploration Geophysicist, processing and interpreting seismic data for oil exploration in Asia and Europe. She also worked in the Environmental Division of the same company, managing environmental projects at domestic facilities, and later moved to an independent petroleum engineering firm as the Manager of Environmental Projects, before joining JPL. She has a BS degree in Geophysics from the University of Texas, and an MS degree in Environmental Sciences and Policy from Johns Hopkins University. less
