Exploring Science and Code

Welcome to my corner of the web, where I share insights, discoveries, and personal projects in the world of science and programming.


Hey there, I'm Kyle Shores, a passionate explorer of the realms where code meets climate. With a Bachelor's in Computer Science and a Master's in Atmospheric Sciences while studying with my advisors Dr. Yangyang Xu and Dr. Ping Yang, I've embarked on a unique journey in the world of technology and environmental science.

Me with my wonderful cat, Luna.

By day, I'm a software developer at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), where I'm part of the Atmospheric Chemistry Observations and Modeling (ACOM) lab. It's here that I support scientists by writing software to aid their research aimed at understanding our planet's complex atmospheric chemistry in weather and climate.

But my mission doesn't stop at the lab door. I'm on a mission to make a positive impact on climate change and foster a deeper understanding of software engineering, scientific programming, and the art of data visualization.

So, welcome to my digital haven, where I blend my expertise in coding with my passion for climate science. Here, I serve up a unique blend of insights and ideas. I'm all about breaking down complex concepts into bite-sized, easy-to-digest nuggets of knowledge.

Through my blog, I strive to make climate change accessible to everyone, offering not only a clear understanding of the science but also practical steps we can all take. But I'm not stopping at climate science; I'll sprinkle in some software engineering wisdom and other intriguing hobbies I dabble in.

My content is tailored for citizen scientists, the technically curious, and anyone who dares to explore the intersection of science and code. Expect to find fun, interactive graphics that unravel the mysteries of our world, all wrapped up in a friendly yet slightly sassy tone. After all, isn't life a mix of inspiration and a touch of nihilistic humor?

Join me in this adventure as we unravel the wonders of our world, one line of code and one climate insight at a time. Together, we'll navigate the complex and the curious with a dash of wit and a commitment to making a real impact.

Let's embark on this journey together. Shall we?
