    Irene Garousi-Nejad

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioI am a hydrologist. My research is in the field of hydrology and water resources management at the interface of process-oriented hydrology science and large-scale geospatial data science. I study physical processes involved in the hydrologic cycle, incorporate the understanding of the relationship among its components into parameterizations of the critical processes, and conduct simulations and analyses of hydrologic models to answer critical questions related to the drivers, patterns, and consequences of environmental natural and human-induced changes in hydrologic response through space and time. I am currently a postdoc in Earth System Science at Stanford University, where I am involved in developing hydrological models to identify strategies for the management of both floods and droughts in heavily developed watersheds in India. I received my doctoral degree in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Utah Water Research Laboratory at Utah State University in 2021, where my research was centered on advancing hydrological modeling to improve flood and water supply forecasting in the western United States basins. I obtained my bachelor's and master's degrees in Agricultural Engineering – Water Resources Engineering from the University of Tehran, Iran. Outside of my office, I enjoy hiking, reading, and painting.

  • Meredith Goebel

    Meredith Goebel

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Geophysics

    BioMeredith Goebel primary interests center on the application of geophysical methods for addressing problems surrounding the evaluation and management of groundwater resources. She currently serves as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University, developing methods for integrating new datasets into groundwater models to improve their accuracy and utility, specifically in California’s Central Valley. In addition to this work, she is also involved in number of projects investigating new tools for groundwater recharge site assessment in the Central Valley.

    Meredith completed her PhD in Geophysics at Stanford University, working with electrical and electromagnetic geophysical methods to map and monitor saltwater intrusion at both the lab and field scale. The field scale research for her PhD was conducted along the coast of the Monterey Bay, mapping the distribution of fresh and salt water in the subsurface both onshore and offshore along the bay. Prior to starting at Stanford she got her BA in Geophysics from UC Berkeley, and interned in the seismology group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

  • Carlos Gould

    Carlos Gould

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioCarlos F. Gould is a 2021-2023 Stanford Earth Postdoctoral Fellow. Carlos is working to understand the drivers of unequal health risks and under what circumstances environmental health interventions and policies can improve health and well-being. His research has combined epidemiology, exposure science, and survey data collection to enhance our understanding of how to reduce household air pollution by promoting the use of clean cooking technologies. Carlos holds a PhD in Environmental Health Sciences from Columbia University and a BA in Environmental Studies from Yale University.

  • Brian Green

    Brian Green

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy current research is on the dynamics and circulation of the stratosphere, focusing on quantifying the sources and effects of gravity waves. More broadly, I'm interested in and curious about a large range of topics relating to tropical climate, clouds, and the general circulation of the atmosphere and ocean.

  • 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.
