Current Role at StanfordI am a PhD candidate in the group of Dr. Tiziana Vanorio
Basic Life Science Research Associate, Geological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe aim of my research is to understand the interactions between the physical and biological Earth systems using data derived from living organisms, fossils, and the sratigraphic record. The principal driving questions are: How are biological signals filtered through the stratigraphic record? How did past environmental changes influence the diversity, abundance, and ecology of marine animals? What is the role of physiology in structuring marine animal ecosystems through time?
Julio Enrique Herrera Estrada
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Earth System Science
BioJulio E. Herrera Estrada is a Postdoctoral Scholar at Stanford University’s Department of Earth System Science working with Prof. Noah Diffenbaugh. He uses satellite data to calculate the impacts that climate extremes have had on electricity generation globally. Moreover, Julio is interested in developing recommendations for sustainable and resilient management of complex water-energy-food systems, and implementing risk identification, prevention, and management mechanisms for droughts and other natural hazards.
Prior to Stanford, Julio obtained his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering and Water Resources at Princeton University, where he also pursued a certificate in Science Technology, and Environmental Policy at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. At Princeton, Julio studied various aspects of droughts, including how they evolve in time and space and how they may be affected by climate change. He also quantified the impacts that droughts have had on pollutant emissions from the electricity sector in the Western U.S.
Julio was awarded the NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship in 2014, and in 2015 he participated in the Young Scientists Summer Program at the Institute for Applied Systems Analysis. He has presented at several conferences including the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union, and has been invited to present at The World Bank Group. In 2015, Julio co-founded Highwire Earth, an interdisciplinary online publication on sustainable development, where the Princeton University community can share their work and insights. He also served as President of the Latino Graduate Student Association and of the Graduate Student Representatives in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Princeton.
Julio received his B.S. in Applied Mathematics from Columbia University. There he was involved with the Columbia International Relations Council and Association and the Columbia Student Chapter of Engineers Without Borders. Julio is originally from Mexico City, Mexico.
