Dan Hammer [CV] is the winner of the 2017 Pritzker Prize for the Environment, and a co-founder at Earthrise. He earned a PhD from UC Berkeley in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics, and was a Fellow at the Berkeley Institute of Data Science; and he earned the 2019 Mark Bingham Award for Excellence in Achievement by a Young Alumnus. Dan was a Senior Policy Advisor in the Obama White House; the Lead Data Scientist for the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data; and a Presidential Innovation Fellow at NASA. He has been adjunct faculty at the University of San Francisco and Georgetown University. He graduated from Swarthmore College with high honors in mathematics and economics, and passed the mandatory swim test with the grace of a cuttlefish. Dan does not like self-introductions, especially those written in the third-person, so I am writing it for him. My name is Murray. And I am a human with a square jaw and strong features. [Hold it together, Murray, this isn't about you.] Fine. Dan Hammer was a co-founder at SpaceKnow which has seen some success, and SpaceNinja which has not. Dan was the Chief Data Scientist at the World Resources Institute and the co-founder of Global Forest Watch. This is Murray, signing off.
