1. Jasper Ridge Bird Banding Station - I run a year round bird banding station at the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. The main goals of this project are to estimate productivity and survivorship among the neotropic migrants that breed at JRBP and track demographics along a gradient of fragmentation to assess the relative importance of JRBP in the context of surrounding riparian corridors.
2. Amphibian Fungal Pathogens - My study looks at the impacts of microhabitat conditions (temperature, soil temperature, humidity, soil moisture, and vegetation) on the distribution of the fungal pathogen Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis in a wild population of California slender salamander (Batrachoseps attenuatus).
3. Applications of Coexistence Theory in Seabird Nesting Colonies - I use Modern Coexistence Theory as a framework to understand how seabird colonies in the Atlantic Ocean maintain species diversity. I collect behavioral and reproductive data in these colonies to test hypotheses derived from theory.
4. Effects of Cultural Restoration on the Conservation of the Endangered Hawaiian Stilt - My study aims to link the effects of cultural restoration of native Hawaiian fish ponds to the conservation of the Hawaiian Stilt as a mutually beneficial process.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDesign and implementation of novel statistical algorithms based on the Multilevel Monte Carlo method to accelerate the quantification of uncertainty in quantities of interest for multiphase systems such as reactive granular media and subsurface flows.
Development of neural-network based surrogate approaches to enable data-driven sensitivity analysis and uncertainty quantification for multiscale systems such as energy storage systems, and accelerate the design process of such devices.
Sarah Avery Claire Taylor
Masters Student in Earth Systems
Student Advisor, Earth Systems Program
BioSarah is an undergraduate in the B.S. program in Earth Systems with a focus in human environmental systems. Specifically, her interests include climate change modeling, environmental policy and law, and sustainability. She is a student advisor for the Stanford Earth Systems program and in charge of maintaining alumni relations.
During her time at Stanford, Sarah has found a passion in educating her peers in sustainable food practices. Sarah is also a two-time kitchen manager on the Stanford row, and this year is entrusted with student staff training for all kitchen managers. Within her role as a kitchen manager she strives to optimize the intersection of student health, nutrition, and sustainability.
On the weekends you can find Sarah hiking nearby at Hidden Villa, brewing craft kombucha, and tending to her 15 chickens. She is from Dallas, Texas and a graduate of The Hockaday School.
