Jake Longenecker (BA, Franklin and Marshall College) received his BA from Franklin and Marshall College, where he was instrumental in developing what would become the initial version of ECHO-GPM. Working as an Environmental Scientist and Geophysicist, Jake continued to refine his field work and data interpretation, while collaborating with Power 7 team members and further refining the ECHO-GPM algorithm. In 2017, Jake was installed on the Karst Commission and was awarded the "Young Karst Researcher Award" for his work on ECHO-GPM.
In 2018, he joined Power 7 as a Geoscientist and Lead Developer. Since joining Power 7, Jake has advanced the ECHO-GPM science with the addition of ECHO-ID, developed THOR in collaboration with other Power 7 team members, promoted Power 7 services in peer-reviewed symposiums and publications, and is integral to the development of our proprietary technologies through his research, field work, and innovative collaboration.
