  • Meredith Goebel

    Meredith Goebel

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Geophysics

    BioMeredith Goebel primary interests center on the application of geophysical methods for addressing problems surrounding the evaluation and management of groundwater resources. She currently serves as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Stanford University, developing methods for integrating new datasets into groundwater models to improve their accuracy and utility, specifically in California’s Central Valley. In addition to this work, she is also involved in number of projects investigating new tools for groundwater recharge site assessment in the Central Valley.

    Meredith completed her PhD in Geophysics at Stanford University, working with electrical and electromagnetic geophysical methods to map and monitor saltwater intrusion at both the lab and field scale. The field scale research for her PhD was conducted along the coast of the Monterey Bay, mapping the distribution of fresh and salt water in the subsurface both onshore and offshore along the bay. Prior to starting at Stanford she got her BA in Geophysics from UC Berkeley, and interned in the seismology group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

  • Carlos Gould

    Carlos Gould

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioCarlos F. Gould is a 2021-2023 Stanford Earth Postdoctoral Fellow. Carlos is working to understand the drivers of unequal health risks and under what circumstances environmental health interventions and policies can improve health and well-being. His research has combined epidemiology, exposure science, and survey data collection to enhance our understanding of how to reduce household air pollution by promoting the use of clean cooking technologies. Carlos holds a PhD in Environmental Health Sciences from Columbia University and a BA in Environmental Studies from Yale University.

  • Brian Green

    Brian Green

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy current research is on the dynamics and circulation of the stratosphere, focusing on quantifying the sources and effects of gravity waves. More broadly, I'm interested in and curious about a large range of topics relating to tropical climate, clouds, and the general circulation of the atmosphere and ocean.

  • Tianyang Guo

    Tianyang Guo

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Geological Sciences

    BioDr. Tianyang Guo earned his Ph.D. degree in Rock Mechanics from the Department of Earth Sciences, the University of Hong Kong in 2020. He earned his bachelor's and master’s degree from Wuhan University (WHU) in 2013 and 2016, respectively. He was awarded the National Scholarship for Graduate in 2015 and graduated from WHU as an outstanding graduate. Before joining Stanford, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) under PolyU Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme 2021.

    His research interests include (1) Microcracking mechanisms of granite based on acoustic emission (AE) and microscopic observation. (2) Application of machine learning in AE data interpretation. (3) Cracking mechanisms and induced microseismicity during the injection of fluid and CO2 into reservoir rocks or caprock.

  • Natalie Herbert

    Natalie Herbert

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioNATALIE HERBERT is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Behavioral Science in the Department of Earth Systems Science and at the Woods Institute for the Environment. Her research investigates decision-making in the face of environmental risk. She completed her Ph.D. in 2020 at the Annenberg School for Communication, where she researched health and science communication with a focus on communicating scientific uncertainty. In 2020, Natalie was a Christine Mirzayan Science and Technology Policy Graduate Fellow at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine; she was the Rosenblith Fellow in Policy and Global Affairs and the InterAcademy Partnership.

  • Juan Sebastian Hernandez-Suarez

    Juan Sebastian Hernandez-Suarez

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioJ. Sebastian Hernandez-Suarez is a recent PhD graduate in Biosystems Engineering from Michigan State University. He is now a postdoctoral scholar working with Dr. Steven Gorelick in water rights markets modeling in the Upper Colorado River Basin. Originally from Bogota, Colombia, he showed an early interest in humans' relationship with natural resources, especially water. This interest motivated him to obtain a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering and then a master's in Water Resources Engineering. Before pursuing his PhD, Sebastian worked for the Colombian government in environmental policy-making related to ecological flows and watershed management. His research interests include numerical modeling, artificial intelligence, and multi-objective optimization to support multicriteria decision-making.

  • Maomao Hu

    Maomao Hu

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Energy Resources Engineering

    BioMaomao Hu is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Energy Resources Engineering at Stanford University since November 2021. Prior to joining Stanford, he was a postdoc in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford for two years. He received his PhD degree in Building Environment and Energy Engineering from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2019. In 2018, he studied as a guest PhD student in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Technical University of Denmark.

    His research interests include data analytics, data-driven modelling, numerical optimization, and model predictive control of the building and urban energy systems for GHG emission reduction, energy efficiency, energy flexibility, and energy resiliency. He has been actively contributing to international collaborations, including the ongoing IEA EBC Annex 81 (Data-Driven Smart Buildings) and Annex 82 (Energy Flexible Buildings Towards Resilient Low Carbon Energy Systems).
