BioI am a PhD student interested in the quantification of subsurface uncertainty, with four years of experience at Freeport-McMoRan's copper mine at Bagdad, Arizona.
My research questions include: How do scientists, engineers, and investors interpret and understand the uncertainty associated with the geologic model? How can implicit modeling be used to quantify uncertainty? Do subsurface resources require a different philosophical approach to financial analysis, since much of their value is dependent on geologic modelling?

The Cecil H. and Ida M. Green Professor in Geophysics
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsBiographical Information
Jerry M. Harris is the Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Geophysics and Associate Dean for the Office of Multicultural Affairs. He joined Stanford in 1988 following 11 years in private industry. He served five years as Geophysics department chair, was the Founding Director of the Stanford Center for Computational Earth and Environmental Science (CEES), and co-launched Stanford's Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP). Graduates from Jerry's research group, the Stanford Wave Physics Lab, work in private industry, government labs, and universities.
My research interests address the physics and dynamics of seismic and electromagnetic waves in complex media. My approach to these problems includes theory, numerical simulation, laboratory methods, and the analysis of field data. My group, collectively known as the Stanford Wave Physics Laboratory, specializes on high frequency borehole methods and low frequency labratory methods. We apply this research to the characterization and monitoring of petroleum and CO2 storage reservoirs.
I teach courses on waves phenomena for borehole geophysics and tomography. I recently introduced and co-taught a new course on computational geosciences.
I was the First Vice President of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists in 2003-04, and have served as the Distinguished Lecturer for the SPE, SEG, and AAPG.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMichael hopes to identify how ecosystem services and environmental health indicators are affected by sanitation infrastructure in development scenarios as a way to push the focus beyond that of household-level sanitation.

BioMaceo is a senior majoring in the Earth Systems Biosphere track. Hailing from Santa Cruz, California, he is passionate about the outdoors, conservation, and adventuring. Before coming to Stanford, Maceo took a gap year to travel in South America. He spent four months in Chilean Patagonia, backpacking, mountaineering, and volunteering in Torres del Paine national park. He also studied Thai massage and traveled through Southeast Asia. Since coming to Stanford, he has worked at Life Lab community garden, conducted research at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory, and volunteered as a tutor at the East Palo Alto Academy High School. Maceo is excited about sustainable agriculture, environmental education, and social justice. He hopes to learn more about these issues and about himself in order to best serve communities and develop creative solutions to global problems. Outside of academics, Maceo loves to play music, rock climb, and go on spontaneous adventures!
