  • Audrey M. Yau

    Audrey M. Yau

    Lecturer, School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences
    Educational Initiatives Program Director, School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences - Administration/Finance

    BioAs the Educational Initiatives Program Director in the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, Audrey supports the development of educational programming for undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral scholars.

    Audrey completed a B.A. in Earth and Planetary Science (Geology) and B.S. in Molecular Environmental Biology at UC Berkeley, a Ph.D. in Geosciences at Princeton University, and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Desert Research Institute. Her graduate and postdoctoral work focused on geochemical records of climate from ice cores. A large focus of her research concentrated on extending our current ice core records beyond 800ka, for which she spent time in the Dry Valleys of Antarctica to date and analyze ancient ice.

  • David Zhen Yin

    David Zhen Yin

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Geological Sciences

    BioDavid Zhen Yin is the Postdoctoral Researcher working on the Stanford-Chevron Collaboration Project at SCERF. He uses Bayesian Evidential Learning to directly forecast and quantify uncertainty for oil/gas reservoirs at the appraisal stage.

    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 internarial conferences. He was awarded the SEG Frans and Alice Hammons Award in 2014.

  • Clara Yoon

    Clara Yoon

    Ph.D. Student in Geophysics

    BioMy name is Clara Yoon, and I am a PhD candidate in earthquake seismology at Stanford University, advised by Prof. Greg Beroza and working closely with Prof. Bill Ellsworth.

    I have a unique, diverse combination of skills in geophysics, seismology, radar science, and software development that enables me to successfully approach interdisciplinary scientific problems and develop robust technical solutions.

    I am currently seeking employment as I expect to receive my PhD in geophysics from Stanford University in April 2018. I prefer to relocate to the Los Angeles area, although I am considering jobs anywhere in California.
