Rowan Cockett
CTO, 3point Science


Rowan Cockett is the founder and CTO of 3point Science (acquired by Aranz Geo in 2016), a company building web-based visualization software for the geoscience industry, including Steno3D. Rowan is also a graduate student at the University of British Columbia, where he is researching a numerical framework aimed at increasing quantitative communication in the geosciences developed through his studies on numerical geophysics, subsurface flow, and structural geology. Rowan is interested in the intersection of education, industry, and academia and seeing what happens when you make powerful scientific modeling, visualization, and communication tools accessible through the web. Much of his research is accessible through an open source software initiative for geophysical simulations and parameter estimation (SimPEG) and an open website for geoscience modeling (Visible Geology).

Reproducible research and open science
Location: Sutton Center/Sutton South Level: Non-technical
Lindsey Heagy (University of British Columbia), Rowan Cockett (3point Science)
Web-based textbooks and interactive simulations built in Jupyter notebooks provide an entry point for course participants to reproduce content they are shown and dive into the code used to build them. Lindsey Heagy and Rowan Cockett share strategies and tools for developing an educational stack that emerged from the deployment of a course on geophysics and some lessons learned along the way.
