Andrea Polli is an award-winning digital media artist and Associate Professor of Art and Ecology with appointments in the College of Fine Arts and School of Engineering at the University of New Mexico. She holds the Mesa Del Sol Endowed Chair of Digital Media and directs the Social Media Workgroup. Her work with science, technology, and media has been presented widely in over 100 presentations, exhibitions, and performances internationally.
Polli currently works in collaboration with atmospheric scientists to develop systems for understanding storm and climate through sound (called sonification). Her recent projects
