    Philip Womble

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioPhilip Womble is an attorney and a hydrologist specializing in water policy and water markets. He is a legal/postdoctoral fellow with the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University. Philip received his Ph.D. in Environment and Resources from Stanford and his J.D. from Stanford Law School, where his research evaluated optimal environmental water rights marketing in the Upper Colorado River Basin, barriers to water marketing in the state of Colorado, and Native American groundwater claims across the western United States. His work has been published in journals such as Science, Water Resources Research, and the Harvard Environmental Law Review. During graduate school, Philip worked for the Special Master in the U.S. Supreme Court interstate water dispute Montana v. Wyoming, The Nature Conservancy's Colorado River Program, and a water law firm. Before graduate school, he worked for the Environmental Law Institute in Washington, DC, where he analyzed the most established market for freshwater ecosystem services in the United States – wetland and stream compensatory mitigation under the Clean Water Act. Philip grew up in North Carolina, where he received his B.S. in Environmental Sciences from UNC-Chapel Hill.

  • Zutao Yang

    Zutao Yang

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioI am an ecosystem ecologist using data-driven approaches to study global environmental changes, including climate change, land use land cover change, and coupled natural and human (CNH) systems. My data comes from both remote sensing observation and field measurements. My current project is studying methane emissions from abandoned oil and gas wells and from home appliances in California.

  • Xueying Yu

    Xueying Yu

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioI study atmospheric chemistry, greenhouse gas emissions, satellite remote sensing retrievals, and carbon mitigation, using inverse modeling and other data-driven approaches. My current project is quantifying methane emissions from point source level to the global budget.
