Ph.D. Student in Civil and Environmental Engineering, admitted Autumn 2019
research assistant, Civil and Environmental Engineering
BioRyan Searcy is currently a PhD candidate at Stanford University. His research focuses on monitoring and modeling threats to coastal health. His current projects involve developing data-driven models to predict beach water quality, using environmental DNA (eDNA) to assess native salmonid populations in a coastal stream, and collecting physical oceanographic data to measure circulation and retention at a chronically-polluted beach. Prior to Stanford, Ryan was the beach water quality modeler for Heal the Bay. In that position, he built and managed the NowCast system which provides beachgoers and health agencies daily water quality predictions for dozens of California beaches. Ryan is a frequent user of the coast and surfs whenever the weather and work allow.
Research Director, Codiga Center, Resource Recovery Center
BioChungheon Shin is the Research Director at the Codiga Resource Recovery Center at Stanford University. He is passionate about prospects for sustainability through resource recovery from waste streams and believes that engineering can make it possible. He has been developing and optimizing innovative processes that can recover resources while mitigating greenhouse gas emissions. His studies incorporate various processes (biological and physicochemical systems), scales of analyses (kinetics to systems-level), and computational skills (conventional and data-driven models). He received his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering at Inha University (South Korea) while developing the Staged Anaerobic Fluidized-bed Membrane Bioreactor (SAF-MBR), enabling recovery of clean water and energy from municipal wastewater, with Professor Jaehoe Bae and Professor Perry L. McCarty. He was a postdoctoral scholar in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department at Stanford University under the supervision of Professor Craig S. Criddle and Adjunct Professor Sebastien Tilmans.
Adjunct Lecturer, Atmosphere and Energy
BioKirsten Stasio is Executive Director of the Nevada Clean Energy Fund (NCEF). She also serves as an Adjunct Lecturer at Stanford University, where she co-teaches Understand Energy, a course that gives students the knowledge and tools to engage in the energy and sustainability sectors.
Throughout her career, Kirsten has strived to translate her life-long passion for environmental sustainability into real impact across the policy, education, corporate, and investment sectors. Before joining NCEF, Kirsten worked at MAP Energy, an energy investment firm, where she helped scale investments in renewable energy across the US. Her early career began at the World Resources Institute (WRI), a non-profit, where she worked with policymakers and other stakeholders to implement climate finance solutions. While getting her graduate degree at Stanford, Kirsten worked at Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) where she helped launched a new energy efficiency initiative with large businesses in the Bay Area. Kirsten also worked at Apple to implement energy measures at Apple's headquarters, retail stores, and data centers.
Kirsten began teaching at Stanford in early 2015 after graduating from Stanford with an MBA and an MS degree in the Emmet-Interdisciplinary Program on Environment and Resources (E-IPER). Kirsten also earned a dual BA in International Relations and French from the University of California, Davis.
The origins of Kirsten's passion for sustainability trace back to her childhood when she spent time on her family’s fourth-generation ranch in the Sierra Nevada foothills, a place where she enjoys spending time today with her husband and daughter.
