Earth Observation Manager, Rory Donnelly, leads the EO Data Science team in delivering world class satellite data powered solutions. Rory joined NGIS with an exotic background including a PhD in Atmospheric Modelling and a decade of geospatial work in Europe. After a year in the south of France, he spent five years in Belgium managing wind and solar energy research and discovery for a renewable energy consultancy and subsequently led operational satellite data processing for a marine lab in the United Kingdom.
More recently, Rory was involved with the European Association of Remote Sensing Companies in Brussels leading international market development for the European EO sector. One of the most enjoyable parts of Rory’s role at NGIS is being part of a company that truly lives environmental and social responsibility, and where staff are people first. He thoroughly enjoys bringing real, and measurable, positive change to the world through the work that the EO Data Science team delivers.
