    Caroline Alexa Famiglietti

    Ph.D. Student in Earth System Science

    BioCaroline Famiglietti is a first-year PhD student working with Prof. Alexandra Konings. She is interested in using remote sensing technologies to assess large-scale interactions between the carbon and water cycles. In 2017, Caroline graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and a minor in Geography/Environmental Studies. Prior to graduate school, Caroline worked in the Carbon Cycle & Ecosystems group at NASA JPL (with Josh Fisher) from 2017-2018 and in the UC Berkeley Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (with Sally Thompson) in 2016.

  • Caroline Ferguson

    Caroline Ferguson

    Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources

    BioCaroline Ferguson is a Stanford PhD student in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources (E-IPER). She is currently engaged in two research endeavors: one investigating gender in Palau's sea cucumber fishery through an intersectional lens, and another addressing forced migration and climate adaptation in the Marshall Islands. As part of her work with Marshallese immigrants, she also conducts research in her home state, Arkansas. www.ceferguson.com

  • Jenna Forsyth

    Jenna Forsyth

    Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources

    BioJenna is a PhD student in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources and has a Master's in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Washington. Her research brings together principles of environmental science, epidemiology, and behavior change. She hopes to develop and evaluate interventions to minimize exposures to contaminants and disease vectors in households in low-income countries. Her most recent research on lead contamination in food has brought her to Bangladesh.

    BioPhD candidate in Energy Resources Engineering with over 10 years of experience in the Energy industry. Covered a variety of roles from field engineering to project management in consulting, service and operating companies. Worked on major oilfields in China, Iraq, Kuwait, Mexico, Colombia and interacted with top executives in corresponding National Oil Companies.

  • Whitney Ria Francis

    Whitney Ria Francis

    Masters Student in Earth Systems
    Student Employee, Earth Systems Program

    BioWhitney is senior from San Diego, CA aka America's Finest City. After a winding path of exploring different majors, Whitney officially joined the Earth Systems community last year. She is in the Human Environmental Systems track and is also minoring in Asian American Studies. From a young age, Whitney has been passionate and curious about all things food related, which has shaped her interactions with the environment and influenced her interests in the intersection of food, racial, and environmental justice. Whitney hopes to someday do work related to developing sustainable food systems. During her time at Stanford, she has found herself doing fieldwork in Hawaii, exploring Kyoto, and working on a photography project about mixed-race Japanese Americans. This past summer, she was working with the Trust for Public Land in SF doing public grants and policy work. Outside of Earth Systems, Whitney has worked as an RA in Okada, is an active member of the Japanese Student Union, and constantly finds herself taking on new projects. In her free time, she can be found adding new music to her playlists, complaining about the cold, snacking on fresh food at the farm, and hanging out with friends!

  • Laura Froute

    Laura Froute

    Ph.D. Student in Energy Resources Engineering

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on developing high-resolution imaging methodologies applicable to shale, using ╬╝CT, FIB-SEM, and STEM techniques at ambient and cryogenic temperatures. Multiscale datasets with structural, mineralogical and microfluidic information down to nanometer resolution will provide a better understanding of pore network morphology and connectivity, fluid-rock affinities, relevant scales for hydrocarbon transport, and displacement processes during production.

  • Olga Fuks

    Olga Fuks

    Ph.D. Student in Energy Resources Engineering
    Student Resident Asst, Graduate Life Office

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy PhD research lies in the area of stochastic analysis of subsurface flow and study of stochastic PDEs. Specifically, I am working on the development of accurate and fast methods for uncertainty propagation and risk assessment of two-phase flow for complex geological models.
