John is part of the incoming Class of 2025 at Dartmouth College, and hopes to cultivate his interest in data science, computation, and instrumentation in a career spanning natural science and technology. He is originally from Spokane, Washington, and he’s an avid nordic ski racer and soccer player. He also loves waffles and shuffle dancing and sometimes codes in Python and does video post-production.
John DeForest works to update our donor and event records as the Development Database and Donor Research Intern working with our Development Team. His work this summer is motivated by his interest in the history and growth of the scientific field and institutions. He hopes his work will allow Woodwell to develop more funding opportunities to help scientists reach policy-makers and other stakeholders to more effectively turn climate research into urgent action.
