  • Murray Duncan

    Murray Duncan

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Geological Sciences

    BioI am a marine scientist trying to understand how environmental conditions drive ecological patterns of fish and fisheries through a physiological lens. The goal is to generate knowledge that can be incorporated into fisheries management frameworks to enhance resource sustainability. I earned my PhD at the Department of Ichthyology and Fisheries Science, Rhodes University under the supervision prof. Warren Potts in the SAFER lab, Dr Nikki James and Dr Amanda Bates in the Physiological Diversity Lab at Southampton University. I subsequently did a postdoc with the South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity where I helped coordinate multiple research projects across southern Africa. I am currently based at Stanford University, working in Prof. Erik Sperling's Historical Geobiology Lab and Prof. Fio Micheli's lab at Hopkins Marine Station. During this postdoc I will use physiological models to predict climate impacts and identify spatial refugia of key California fishery species including Red Abalone and Purple Urchin.

  • Tianyang Guo

    Tianyang Guo

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Geological Sciences

    BioDr. Tianyang Guo earned his Ph.D. degree in Rock Mechanics from the Department of Earth Sciences, the University of Hong Kong in 2020 under the Postgraduate Scholarship. He earned his bachelor's and master’s degree from Wuhan University (WHU) in 2013 and 2016, respectively. He was awarded the National Scholarship for Graduate in 2015 and graduated from WHU as an outstanding graduate. Before joining Stanford, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) under PolyU Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme 2021.

    His research interests include (1) Microcracking mechanisms of granite based on acoustic emission (AE) and microscopic observation. (2) Application of machine learning in AE data interpretation. (3) Cracking mechanisms and induced microseismicity in the hydraulic fracturing of rocks.

  • Feng Ke

    Feng Ke

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Geological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI mainly focus on the electrical transport and optical properties of low-dimensional materials at extreme conditions, such as ultra-high pressure, low temperature, high magnetic-fields.

  • Jonas Kloeckner

    Jonas Kloeckner

    Graduate Visiting Researcher Student, Geological Sciences

    BioJonas Kloeckner received a MSc in engineering from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil (2016 - 2018). Graduated in mining engineering at the UFRGS (2010 - 2016), and Bac +5 from the Ecole des Mines d'Alès, France (2013 - 2014), and Visitor Student at Columbia University, USA (2012). Currently Mr. Kloeckner is a Visiting Research Scholar at Stanford University tutored by Professor Jef Caers, and he is a PhD Candidate at the Mineral & Environmental Technology and Extractive Metallurgy Program with emphasis in Geostatistics at the UFRGS and supervised by Professor João Felipe Coimbra Leite Costa.

  • Pedro M. Monarrez

    Pedro M. Monarrez

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Geological Sciences

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research at Stanford focuses on the evolution of body size of marine animals throughout the fossil record. Specifically, I am using body size as a predictor for marine animal extinction and origination throughout the last 500 million years. I am also working on body size evolution during intervals of rapid diversification of marine invertebrates during the early Paleozoic.

    My overall research interests broadly focus on stratigraphic paleobiology. In particular, I seek to understand the various environmental and biotic factors driving macroevolutionary patterns of marine invertebrates in the fossil record within a sequence stratigraphic context. I am also interested in the variation and reconciliation of local and regional expressions of global macroevolutionary patterns and perturbations, such as mass extinctions.
