NMTC invites you to an exclusive meet and greet with WIT Celebration Keynote Speaker, Karen McKinnon. Enjoy 5 wine selections coupled with a savory plate that pairs the tastes of cheese, bread and nuts.


Karen McKinnon relocated to New Mexico in 2017 from her native Colorado to join Descartes Labs as an Applied Scientist. She received her PhD in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Harvard University in 2015; her doctorate research focused on developing novel statistical and physical models for climate variability with applications ranging from extreme events to long-term climate change. After finishing up her degree, she moved back to Colorado by way of New York City to spend two years as an Advanced Study Program post-doctoral fellow at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. When not wrangling data and writing code, Karen can be found going on outdoor adventures throughout the West.
