    Duncan Joseph Coleman

    Undergraduate, Earth Systems Program

    BioI am dedicated to improving the welfare of all animals, whether they are found in a laboratory, farm, zoo or the wild.

    I work in Joe Garner’s lab in Stanford’s comparative medicine department to improve the welfare of a variety of laboratory animals, especially mice. As a Park Ranger at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, I patrol the boundaries of the park, interact with all visitors, and work on a variety of research projects with the Stanford biology department. I am an active member of the student group People for Animal Welfare which organizes events on vegan and environmental activism. Through Stanford’s Sophomore College Program Life in the Zoo, I designed and built a novel feeding enrichment device with a team of students for a family of Meerkats housed at the San Francisco Zoo and learned to navigate the conflicting demands of visitors, staff, board members, and welfare needs on zoo animals. I also have extensive fieldwork experience as a zookeeper, visitor guide, veterinary assistant, and field biologist at wildlife rehabilitation and rescue projects in Costa Rica and Suriname. Over the last four summers, I have volunteered and interned at Kids Saving the Rainforest, The Sloth Institute, and the Green Heritage Fund in Suriname. My personal efforts to reintroduce rainforest species (especially Tamandua anteaters) and heal wildlife harmed by human activity informed my decision to start my own wildlife rehabilitation project in Costa Rica after my time at Stanford University.

  • Hailey Deres

    Hailey Deres

    Masters Student in Earth Systems

    BioThis year, Hailey is a senior on the Oceans and Climate track of Earth Systems. She was born and raised in New England but relocated to Dallas at age 10, and she's missed the coast ever since. Hailey loves all things related to the sea, but she is particularly interested in the cultural ties that have historically drawn communities to the ocean and the education necessary to facilitate global cooperation. She is entering her senior year following a quarter spent at the Hopkins Marine Station in Monterey and a summer filled with research on abalone physiology and their physical distribution. During her senior year, Hailey will be pursuing an honors thesis focusing on abalone and their possible responses to projected oceanic change. She spends most of her free time baking, listening to podcasts, and trying to convince everyone to go to trivia night with her.

  • Sibyl Diver

    Sibyl Diver


    BioDr. Sibyl Diver is an interdisciplinary environmental scientist, a lecturer at Stanford University in the Earth Systems Program, and co-lead for the Stanford Environmental Justice Working Group. She does community-engaged research on Indigenous water governance, focusing on Pacific Northwest salmon watersheds. This includes research on co-management (or collaborative management) arrangements between Indigenous communities and state agencies. She received her PhD from Berkeley's Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, where she helped build the Karuk-UC Berkeley Collaborative, a group supporting the Karuk Tribe's eco-cultural revitalization strategy in Northern California.

    For the past 20 years, Sibyl has worked in partnership with community leaders on issues of Indigenous peoples and salmon around the North Pacific – in the Russian Far East, Alaska, Canada and the US. Previous to graduate school, she spent eight years doing international conservation work and facilitating international exchanges with community leaders as a Russian translator -- an experience that introduced her to the deep connections between salmon conservation and Indigenous peoples. She completed her undergraduate work at Stanford, earning a dual degree in Human Biology and Russian.
