BioThe Jackson lab examines the different ways people affect the Earth. They seek to produce the building blocks of basic scientific knowledge and to use that knowledge to guide policy solutions for global warming, energy extraction, and other environmental issues. They're currently examining the effects of climate change and droughts on forest mortality and grassland ecosystems, and working to measure and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the Global Carbon Project (globalcarbonproject.org), which Jackson chairs. Recently they've also published the first studies looking at fracking and drinking water quality and mapped thousands of natural gas leaks across cities such as Boston, Manhattan, and Washington, D.C.
As an author and photographer, Rob has published a trade book about the environment (The Earth Remains Forever, University of Texas Press), two books of children’s poems, Animal Mischief and Weekend Mischief (Highlights Magazine and Boyds Mills Press), and recent or forthcoming poems in the journals Southwest Review, Cortland Review, Cold Mountain Review, Boston Literary Magazine, The Lyric, and Light. His photographs have appeared in many media outlets, including the NY Times, Washington Post, USA Today, US News and World Report, Science, Nature, and National Geographic News.

Ph.D. Student in Geological and Environmental Sciences
BioI am broadly interested in characterizing natural systems on a molecular level, using both stable metal isotope fractionation and spectroscopic techniques. I entered the department of Geological Sciences at Stanford University as a graduate student in fall 2014. I am currently working with Professors Gordon Brown and Kate Maher on the reduction of chromium(VI), a common environmental pollutant, by aqueous iron(II) complexes and iron(II)-bearing clay minerals.
As an undergrad, I majored in chemistry at Princeton University and worked in the group of Geosciences Professor Satish Myneni, who sparked my interest in geochemistry. My research projects in the Myneni group included developing a method to quantify thiols in natural systems and characterizing halogenation of natural organic matter.
James Holland Jones
Associate Professor of Earth System Science and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am a biological anthropologist with primary research interests in evolutionary demography and life history theory. In addition these fundamental interests in the evolution of human life histories, I work at the intersection of disease ecology, the analysis of dynamical systems, and social network analysis. My work combines the formalisms of population biology, statistics, and social network analysis to address fundamental problems in biodemography, epidemiology, and human decision-making in variable environments.
