Ph.D. Student in Energy Resources Engineering
BioGege Wen is a Ph.D. candidate in the Benson Lab. She obtained her B.S. degree from the Mining Engineering Department at the University of Toronto and an M.S. degree from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Stanford University.
Her Ph.D. research focuses on using deep learning to conduct fast multiphase flow simulation.
Ph.D. Student in Earth System Science
Stanford Student Employee, Continuing Studies
BioJeff Wen is a PhD student in the Department of Earth System Science. His research interests are broadly focused on applying machine learning to understand the social impacts of climate change and make decisions under climate uncertainty. He was previously an Assembly Fellow at the Berkman Klein Center and MIT Media Lab studying the governance and ethics of AI and formerly a data scientist at Tesla. Jeff holds a Bachelors in Economics from Wharton and a Masters in Environmental Studies from the University of Pennsylvania.
Sr. Associate Director, Environment & Energy Institutes, School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences
BioClare Wildenborg is Senior Associate Director of Development for Energy and Environment Institutes at Stanford University. She originally joined Stanford’s Office of Development in 2005 as a member of the External Relations team at Stanford Law School and later served as the Assistant Director of External Relations for the Multidisciplinary Initiatives during The Stanford Challenge.
Clare earned a BA in English from Loras College in Dubuque, IA and an MA in English from Winona State University in Winona, MN.
Jane Kathryn Willenbring
Associate Professor of Geological Sciences
BioJane Willenbring joined Stanford as an Associate Professor in the summer of 2020. Jane is a geologist who solves problems related to the Earth surface. Her research is primarily done to understand the evolution of the Earth’s surface - especially how landscapes are affected by tectonics, climate change, and life. She and her research group use geochemical techniques, high-resolution topographic data, field observations, and, when possible, couple these data to landscape evolution numerical models and ice sheet models. The geochemical tools she uses and develops often include cosmogenic nuclide systems, which provide powerful, novel methods to constrain rates of erosion and mineral weathering. Jane has also started to organize citizen science campaigns and apply basic science principles to problems of human health with an ultimate broader impact goal of cleaning up urban areas and environments impacted by agriculture. She received her B.Sc. with honors from the North Dakota State University where she was a McNair Scholar and in the NDSU scholars program. She holds a Masters degree from Boston University. Her Ph.D. is in Earth Science from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada where she was a Killam Scholar. She was a Synthesis Postdoctoral Fellow through the National Center for Earth Surface Dynamics at the Saint Anthony Falls Lab at the University of Minnesota, and an Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellow and then subsequently a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Helmholz GFZ Potsdam, Germany. Jane was previously an Associate Professor in the Geosciences Research Division and Thomas and Evelyn Page Chancellor's Endowed Faculty Fellow at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego where she was the director of the Scripps Cosmogenic Isotope Laboratory (SCI-Lab). She was also a tenure-track professor at the University of Pennsylvania. She will be a Stanford University Gabilan Faculty Fellow in 2021-2023. She is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America and was the inaugural recipient of the Marguerite T. Williams award from the American Geophysical Union.
Meghan Nicole Wilson
Masters Student in Earth Systems
BioMeghan Wilson is a senior in the Land Systems track of Earth Systems focusing on environmental education and community development. Growing up in Westerville, Ohio, her relationship to the environment was contextualized through its connections to family meals, land history, and the impromptu science lab of her backyard. A gap year before college led her to Morocco and Guam, where she studied Arabic, volunteered with a citizen science project on coral reef monitoring, and solidified her passion for environmental science. Since coming to Stanford, her interest in growing food has become the connection point for how she hopes to engage the public in better stewardship of the environment. She spent her first college summer at Stanford Sierra Camp, where she led preschoolers on adventures around Fallen Leaf Lake and spent weekends hiking & camping in the Sierras. She spent her sophomore summer at City Blossoms in Washington, D.C., where she worked with a youth entrepreneurship program on urban farming, and this year she is continuing to explore the role of youth programs in urban agriculture through her senior thesis. Meghan’s favorite quarter at Stanford was spent in Hawai‘i on the Wrigley Field Program, which she’ll probably never stop telling stories about. On campus she spends her free time nurturing new plants at the educational farm, planning the next AMENDS conference, or testing out new ingredients in bread recipes.
