BioMiles Traer received his B.A. in Geophysics from the University of California at Berkeley in 2005. After working at the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory, he moved to Stanford University and joined the Tectonic Geomorphology Group as a research assistant. Building on his research in the Tectonic Geomorphology Group, Miles received his Ph.D. in Geological and Environmental Sciences from Stanford University in 2014. While completing his Ph.D., he also co-created the Generation Anthropcene podcast with fellow Ph.D. student Michael Osborne, a project that told audio stories about the science of Earth's changing surface geology. Miles continues his research on the evolution of the ocean floor and currently works as a science communicator and multimedia producer for the School of Earth Sciences.

BioGrowing up in Puerto Rico and later New England, I grew an appreciation for the outdoor environment. This inspired me to pursue a B.S. in Environmental Conservation and Sustainability with a focus in Forest Ecology at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) and a minor in Forestry. At UNH I held numerous research positions, but I worked mainly at the Terrestrial Ecosystems Analysis Lab (TEAL) under the supervision of Andrew Ouimette. At TEAL we conducted research on forest ecosystem carbon and nitrogen dynamics, with emphasis on the effects of atmospheric deposition, air pollution and climate change. I managed numerous projects measuring leaf C, root C, soil C, LAI, and fungal C, but primarily worked on an independent project funded by a McNair Fellowship to understand the allocation of C to mycorrhizae, and mycorrhizal biomass on a tree species and nitrogen availability gradient in a northeastern temperate forest. At Stanford University I will continue to strengthen my understanding of the terrestrial carbon cycle, by deepening our knowledge of rooting growth, and studying how vegetation cover type is affected by different climatic factors such as drought.
