Julie Barnum
Director, Deep Learning Laboratory
SWX TREC • LABORATORY FOR ATMOSPHERIC AND SPACE PHYSICS (LASP)

Julie is the director of the Deep Learning Laboratory (DLL). She is passionate about leading and facilitating technical work and group efforts across organizational and cultural boundaries, and building relationships within communities in the process. Her interdisciplinary background is fitting for this kind of work; she comes to the DLL with a B.S. in applied physics (2015), an M.S. in atmospheric science (2018), and experience working with several space mission software and community projects—including being the principal investigator for the Python in Heliophysics Community–at LASP. Outside of work, you’ll catch Julie dancing (especially hip hop), sharpening her non-English language skills (she’s conversationally fluent in French), and partaking in just about every outdoor activity one could do in Colorado.
