Internship in ML + Climate (remote)

Forwarding along a remote summer internship opportunity at Sust Global, a startup focused on transforming climate science data into meaningful insights for financial institutions. I’m a MS-PhD student at Stanford and did an internship with them last summer. Their focus, sustainable finance, is a very exciting emerging field. Experience with Pangeo and xarray would be a huge plus.

The CTO led the analytics engineering team at Planet Labs (satellite startup in SF) prior to starting this company. Feel free to reach out to me or the CTO for more details.
