Quinn Mitsuko Parker
Ph.D. Student in Earth System Science, admitted Autumn 2023
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsQuinn Parker studies social-ecological dynamics of small-scale fisheries, and their ties to food security and food sovereignty. She examines the cultural, socio-economic, and historical drivers that impact SSF governance, and how these governance models in turn affect resilience of and access to blue food systems.

BioI’m currently a PhD candidate in Earth System Science at Stanford University. I use modern data science techniques to better understand the environmental processes affecting water quality.
This broad topic includes research projects in several different areas:
1. Building a data-driven water quality model that can make predictions in real time based on in situ sensor observations
2. Understanding seasonal contaminant cycling in a uranium-contaminated floodplain in Wyoming
3. Modeling the impact of managed aquifer recharge on groundwater quality in California’s Central Valley
4. Analyzing the financial cost of EPA drinking water quality violations through 10+ years of consumer purchasing data

BioI grew up in Curitiba, a city in southern Brazil, and, moved to Rio de Janeiro to join the Brazilian National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) years ago.
I have a strong grasp of the oil and gas industry, where I have been working for more than 15 years. I have a bachelor’s and master's degree in geology from the Federal University of Parana, Brazil and, I have become a public servant of the ANP, where I have held different technical and managerial positions. I spent these past 15 years working on the ANP’s large-scale strategic projects, conducting a geological evaluation for Brazil’s bidding rounds, and developing a multiyear geological and geophysical data acquisition plan for the Agency. I was also responsible for coordinating the first phase of the onerous assignment process, which authorized the Brazilian Government to onerously assign to NOC Petrobras up to 5 billion barrels of oil. I have also been directly involved in the location of two wells, which discovered two of the country's largest oil fields (Buzios and Mero fields). As a geologist researcher, my main objective aims at acquiring capabilities and developing the knowledge required to manage reservoirs to maximize oil recovery and extend the lifespan of oil fields as well as acquire a solid understanding of oil reservoir management to bring innovative knowledge to Brazil and help create guidelines to monitor oil field development and production in my country.
