Alice Lecinski

Alice Lecinski is a Associate Scientist IV at the High Altitude Observatory of the National Center for Atmospheric Center for Atmospheric Research. She describes herself as mostly a software engineer. Alice can drive all types of instrumentation: sometimes just a camera, sometimes a stratospheric balloon gondola. She loves to write software for instruments that need to be autonomous and intelligent, able to wake on power up, do what they are supposed to do, handle any hardware failures or changing environmental conditions, then put themselves to bed when done. Alice also enjoys writing user interfaces for all the devices: making the GUIs simple and easy to use, yet powerful at the same time.
