New Geospatial Data Analyst Joins the Team: Jill Sherwood

The Map and Geospatial Hub is pleased to announce the arrival of Jill Sherwood to ASU Library. After a highly competitive search, Jill was selected from a pool of dozens of candidates to serve as the Hub’s new Geospatial Data Analyst. Her work will involve a dynamic combination of geospatial data (metadata) documentation, processing, curation, collection, and analysis. 

She brings to the table over a decade of multidisciplinary GIS experience in both the academic and government sectors, involving spatial analysis and modeling and geodatabase design, development, and implementation. Particularly relevant for her new role as ASU Library, Jill also carries a strong background in overall data management and metadata documentation.

Jill is a scientist formally trained in multiple disciplines. In addition to her geospatial expertise, she has experience in laboratory and field research. Jill earned two Master of Science degrees: one in Genetics, the other in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, both from Iowa State University. When not geeking out over GIS data, Jill can be found hiking the beautiful Arizona landscapes and hanging with her dog, Oskar.

Welcome to the team, Jill!
