For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth science data, thus forming a community dedicated to making Earth science data more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public. The theme of this year’s meeting is "Data for All People: From Generation to Use and Understanding."

Eli Holmes

NOAA Fisheries
Research Scientist
My research is focused on stochastic processes and statistical models for complex multivariate, interacting systems. Much of what I do involves developing algorithms for fitting multivariate autoregressive state-space (MARSS) models to time-series data, which comes up in vector autoregressive state-space modeling, dynamic linear modeling, MAR(1) modeling, and dynamic factor analysis. I developed an EM algorithm for fitting a general constrained version of these models and developed the widely used MARSS R package for fitting such models. I teach courses in R and Reproducible Research to NOAA staff and teach time series analysis at the University of Washington in Seattle.

I have been involved in the Open Science movement for many years and have most recently been involved in Openscapes cohorts offered at NOAA Fisheries across our science centers.  I am currently involved in planning for the 2023 Year of Open Science in my role as a co-lead of the NMFS R User Group, the Inter-Agency R User Group (federal agencies) and NMFS Openscapes. Much of my Open Science activities are on the GitHub platform: https://github.com/eeholmes
