    Hong Yang

    Ph.D. Student in Geological Sciences

    BioHong Yang is currently a PhD student in Geological Science working with Wendy L. Mao. He joined Mao’s lab at Stanford University in 2018, after finishing his Master’s Degree at HPSTAR, Shanghai, where he was supervised by Jung-Fu Lin. His Master’s thesis focused on the experimental determination of iron isotopic fractionation behavior of lower mantle phases using the Synchrotron X-ray technique NRIXS. Before that, he was an undergraduate majoring in Geochemistry at the University of Science and Technology of China. There he performed the quality assessment of bottled drinking water and water from Lake Chao under Fang Huang’s supervision.

    Hong’s research interests include the chemical (especially isotopic) evolution of the Earth and other planetary bodies; structure and sound velocities of iron-alloys at high pressure; pressure-induced electronic, magnetic, elastic and structural transitions in materials; as well as high pressure photon science. His recent research was published on Earth Planet. Sci. Lett. 506, 113-122 (2019), entitled “Iron isotopic fractionation in mineral phases from Earth’s lower mantle: Did terrestrial magma ocean crystallization fractionate iron isotopes?”.

  • Leehi Yona

    Leehi Yona

    Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources
    Juris Doctor Student, Law
    Student Employee, Center for Teaching and Learning

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsLeehi studies greenhouse gas inventories and how countries use (or misuse) scientific knowledge in developing national carbon inventories and climate policies. She is particularly interested in the global carbon cycle, and how ecosystem and forest carbon is understood by policymakers.

  • Hannah Elizabeth Tracy Young

    Hannah Elizabeth Tracy Young

    Masters Student in Earth Systems
    Casual - Non-Exempt, Bill Lane Center for the American West
    Stanford Student Employee, Earth Systems Program

    BioHannah is an undergraduate in the Earth Systems Program with a focus on Land Systems and is primarily interested in land use and the methods used to monitor land use change. She is a student advisor for the Earth Systems program as well as a docent at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. Hannah is originally from Spearfish, South Dakota located in the beautiful Black Hills where she gained a love for the environment at an early age. Her passion has continued to grow throughout her time at Stanford with engaging courses on campus, studying abroad in Australia, and working as the naturalist at Stanford Sierra Camp. Outside of her academics, she can be found hiking, mountain biking, climbing, doing crosswords, or enjoying a nice cup of coffee.
