United States
Rebecca Moore is Director of Google Earth, Earth Engine and Earth Outreach. She initiated and leads the development of Google Earth Engine, a cloud technology platform that puts an unprecedented amount of satellite data online and enables scientists to conduct global-scale monitoring and measurement of changes in the earth’s environment. Rebecca also conceived and leads the Google Earth Outreach program, which supports nonprofits, educators and indigenous communities in applying Google’s mapping tools to the world’s most pressing problems in environmental conservation, human rights and cultural preservation. Her personal work using Google Earth was instrumental in stopping the logging of more than a thousand acres of redwoods in her Santa Cruz Mountain community. She received a bachelor’s degree in artificial intelligence with honors from Brown University and a master’s degree from Stanford University. In 2013, Rebecca was recognized by the White House as a Champion of Change for Open Science. She was given the 2016 Rachel Carson Award by the National Audubon Society for contributions to the conservation and environmental movement.
