    Alyson Singleton

    Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources

    BioAly is a PhD student in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources, studying how climate instability impacts infectious disease dynamics. She uses tools in computation and network science to study the effect of anthropogenic change on underlying transmission networks in an effort to prevent widening disease disparities and to address the socio-political drivers of disease distribution.

    Prior to coming to Stanford, Aly was a Data Science Fellow at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention where she developed analytic tools for outbreak detection and triage of multiple pathogens and supported the CDC’s Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response. She also worked at the People, Place & Health Collective at the Brown University School of Public Health while earning her undergraduate (BS, Applied Mathematics) and master's degrees (MA, Biostatistics). Outside of science she loves exploring the world through backcountry travel, rollerblading, and live music events.

    Gemma Smith

    Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources
    Ph.D. Minor, Civil and Environmental Engineering

    BioGemma Smith researches the governance and politics of international freshwater resources. To this end, her work combines theory and methods from international relations, comparative politics, public policy, environmental governance, and civil and environmental engineering. Her dissertation research aims to contribute to improving the management of transboundary water quality and pollution issues, through better understanding of governance processes and outcomes in North American borderlands. Her methods draw on a variety of social, political, economic and environmental qualitative and quantitative data with the goal of making more robust causal connections between policy decisions and environmental outcomes.

    Prior to joining the E-IPER Ph.D program, Gemma completed her Master’s in International Policy (Environment and Energy track) at Stanford University. She previously worked in international finance in Europe and Asia, having completed her Bachelor’s in English Literature and Spanish at the University of Exeter, UK, in 2013.
