At the core of scientific visualization is the representation of data graphically - through images, animations, and videos - to improve understanding and develop insight.
Mathematical modelers use mathematics to create models that demonstrate complex processes or solve problems. Many mathematical modelers use their skills to create and animate 3D representations of their processes with the assistance of software technology.
Mechanical engineers design, develop, build, and test mechanical and thermal sensors and devices including tools, engines, and machines.
A Data Support Specialist works with the user community to understand their science needs with the goal of providing support for NASA data and information services. They represent the user in product
Data scientists work with data captured by scientific instruments or generated by a simulator, as well as data that is processed by software and stored in computer systems. They work with scientists to analyze databases and files using data management techniques and statistics.
