    Chenghao Wang

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Earth System Science

    BioChenghao is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Jackson Lab in the Department of Earth System Science. As a part of the New Map of Life Initiative, he is also a fellow in the domain of Environment at the Stanford Center on Longevity. He is currently studying the relationship between multi-scale energy consumption and human well-being metrics to reduce the need for global energy infrastructure and increase global equality. Chenghao received his Ph.D. from Arizona State University where he focused on the impacts of green infrastructure (especially urban trees) on urban meteorology and climatology using numerical simulations and remote sensing techniques.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, 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.

  • David Zhen Yin

    David Zhen Yin

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Geological Sciences

    BioDavid Zhen Yin is the Postdoctoral Researcher working on Stanford-Chevron CoRE Project at SCERF (Stanford Center for Earth Resources Forecasting). He develops Bayesian Evidential Learning for predictions and uncertainty quantification of oil/gas reservoirs.

    Prior to joining SCERF, David was a Research Associate at Edinburgh Time-Lapse Project at Heriot-Watt Institute of Petroleum Engineering in Scotland, leading a research project in collaboration with Statoil from 2016 to 2018. He developed the “WELL2SEIS” technique that efficiently integrate 4D seismic with reservoir engineering data to improve reservoir models. This technique has been applied to seven North Sea projects, and has become Statoil’s standard in-house technology. During this period, he was also a Reservoir Technology Consultant at Statoil Research Center in Bergen, Norway. David developed broad experience in working with complex projects involving the industry as well as broad knowledge about the fields.

    David obtained his PhD in Reservoir Geophysics from Heriot-Watt University, UK, in 2016, and B.Eng (Petroleum Engineering) from China University of Petroleum in 2011. His research interests include Bayesian Evidential Learning, reservoir modelling and updating, uncertainty quantification, time-lapse reservoir monitoring. David has authored more than 10 publications in peer-reviewed journals and international conferences. He was awarded the SEG Frans and Alice Hammons Award in 2014.

    Yuran Zhang

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Energy Resources Engineering

    BioYuran Zhang recently received her PhD from the Department of Energy Resources Engineering (ERE) at Stanford University and is currently a postdoc at ERE. Her research explores the use of novel tracer technologies, especially the application of molecular microbiology techniques, for better characterization of the subsurface.
