BioTrent is first year Ph.D. student working with Prof. Alexandra Konings in the Earth System Science department. He is interested in using remote sensing data to better understand the role of plant water hydraulics in determining terrestrial vegetation's response to climate change. Trent graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2021 with a B.S. in Environmental Sciences and a minor in Catholic Social Tradition.
D. Brian Rogers
Ph.D. Student in Earth System Science, admitted Autumn 2020
Masters Student in Earth System Science, admitted Autumn 2022
BioBrian is a doctoral student in Earth System Science working with Dr. Kate Maher. Brian is interested in developing robust monitoring, reporting, and verification frameworks for open-system carbon dioxide removal (CDR) technologies. He is currently focusing on extending the utility of reactive transport models to address uncertainties in enhanced rock weathering as a CDR strategy.

BioLorenzo Rosa is a Principal Investigator in the Department of Global Ecology at Carnegie Institution for Science at Stanford. Prior to joining Carnegie, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Energy and Process Engineering at ETH Zurich. He holds a Ph.D. in Environmental Science from University of California Berkeley, and a B.S. and M.S. in Environmental Engineering from Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
His research aims to assess the potential benefits and unintended climate and environmental consequences of innovations engineered to satisfy the increasing global demands for energy, water, and food. He studies climate change mitigation and adaptation solutions to food, energy, and water systems. His current work is focusing on the role of irrigation to adapt agriculture to climate change, solutions to agricultural water scarcity, solutions to achieve net-zero emissions in agriculture, environmental implications of climate mitigation technologies, and the quantification of biomass-based carbon dioxide removal potential.
Dr. Rosa was awarded the 2019 AGU Horton Hydrology Research grant and the 2021 AGU Science for Solutions Award. He was also listed among the most influential young leaders in Science and Technology of 2020 by Forbes 30 Under 30.
