    Natalie Herbert

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioNATALIE HERBERT is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Behavioral Science in the Department of Earth Systems Science and at the Woods Institute for the Environment. Her research investigates decision-making in the face of environmental risk. She completed her Ph.D. in 2020 at the Annenberg School for Communication, where she researched health and science communication with a focus on communicating scientific uncertainty. In 2020, Natalie was a Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellow at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine; she was the Rosenblith Fellow in Policy and Global Affairs and the InterAcademy Partnership.

  • Juan Sebastian Hernandez-Suarez

    Juan Sebastian Hernandez-Suarez

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioJ. Sebastian Hernandez-Suarez is a recent PhD graduate in Biosystems Engineering from Michigan State University. He is now a postdoctoral scholar working with Dr. Steven Gorelick in water rights markets modeling in the Upper Colorado River Basin. Originally from Bogota, Colombia, he showed an early interest in humans' relationship with natural resources, especially water. This interest motivated him to obtain a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering and then a master's in Water Resources Engineering. Before pursuing his PhD, Sebastian worked for the Colombian government in environmental policy-making related to ecological flows and watershed management. His research interests include numerical modeling, artificial intelligence, and multi-objective optimization to support multicriteria decision-making.

  • Maomao Hu

    Maomao Hu

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Energy Resources Engineering

    BioMaomao Hu is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University since November 2021. Prior to joining Stanford, he was a postdoc in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford for two years. He received his PhD degree in Building Environment and Energy Engineering from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2019. In 2018, he studied as a guest PhD student in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technical University of Denmark.

    His research interests include data analytics, data-driven modelling, numerical optimization, and model predictive control of the building and urban energy systems for GHG emission reduction, energy efficiency, energy flexibility, and energy resiliency. He has been actively contributing to international collaborations, including the ongoing IEA EBC Annex 81 (Data-Driven Smart Buildings) and Annex 82 (Energy Flexible Buildings Towards Resilient Low Carbon Energy Systems).
