Jordan Pierce

Computer Vision & Machine Learning Engineer

Jordan has an interdisciplinary background in programming, GIS, remote sensing, computer vision and machine learning. Regardless of the domain, he enjoys challenges and helping others with their technical woes while picking up new skills along the way

Jordan graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor's of Science in Geography/GIS and a minor in Oceanography. Originally starting his schooling in computer science, he wanted to apply his technical background to the geosciences and eventually found an interest in the niche fields of hydrography and ocean mapping.

After graduating, Jordan spent some time abroad in Asia where he traveled, taught and worked as a research assistant. While at the University of Hong Kong he led a project for the development of 3-D printed structurally complex artificial reefs, and assisted in using A.I. to mitigate illicit trade of endangered species.

He joins us from the University of New Hampshire, where he obtained his M.S. in Oceanography while working at the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping/Joint Hydrographic Center (CCOM/JHC). There, his focus was on developing CV/ML tools for benthic ecologists for mapping coral reef habitats in 2- and 3-D.

In his free time he enjoys bouldering, disc golf and hard-kombucha.
