Associate Professor of Earth System Science and Senior Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, at the Woods Institute for the Environment and at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research
BioMarshall Burke is an associate professor in the Department of Earth System Science, deputy director at the Center on Food Security and the Environment, and center fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) at Stanford University. He is also a faculty research fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and a co-founder of AtlasAI, a remote sensing start-up. His research focuses on social and economic impacts of environmental change and on measuring and understanding economic development in emerging markets. His work has appeared in both economic and scientific journals, including recent publications in Nature, Science, The Quarterly Journal of Economics, and The Lancet. He holds a PhD in agricultural and resource economics from the University of California, Berkeley and a BA in international relations from Stanford University.

Ph.D. Student in Earth System Science
BioI grew up in Westmoreland, New Hampshire, and graduated from Dartmouth College in 2018 with an undergraduate degree in physics. I am broadly interested in atmospheric dynamics, idealized modeling, and climate change. My current research uses aquaplanet simulations to explore what factors determine global tropical cyclone frequency. My hobbies include hiking, birdwatching, and playing the piano.
Victoria and Roger Sant Director, Earth Systems Program, Professor of Earth System Science and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsAssistant Professor in EESS, focus on marine chemistry and biogeochemistry.
Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science
BioMy research combines biogeochemical and molecular techniques to answer questions about how microbes transform nitrogen and carbon in the environment, and how site-specific factors and human impacts may alter these transformation processes. My research at Stanford is focused on how the microbial communities in San Francisco Bay’s benthic sediments process high levels of nitrogen primarily from wastewater sources. Findings from this work will be used to calibrate a nitrogen removal model that may inform management decisions about nitrogen inputs to the bay. Shortly before arriving at Stanford in August 2020, I completed my Ph.D. at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (William & Mary) with a dissertation on the impacts of fertilization on salt marsh carbon accumulation, nitrogen removal, and resilience to sea level rise.
Temp - Non-Exempt, Department of Earth System Science
BioNathan Dadap is a PhD student in Professor Alexandra Konings’ Group in the Earth System Science Department at Stanford University. He is interested in using remote sensing to better understand peatland hydrology - an important control on fire risk and carbon emissions. Currently, Nathan is working on a research project relating soil moisture and fire in Equatorial Asia. Prior to graduate school, Nathan worked at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on hazardous waste issues. Nathan holds a BS in Applied Physics from Columbia University.
