  • Luwen Wan

    Luwen Wan

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioLuwen is a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence, working with Dr. Kate Maher, Professor at Stanford University in the Department of Earth System Science. Her postdoctoral research focuses on developing tools for tracking the recovery and activity of the North American beaver from a computer version and evaluating beaver as a tool for fostering sustainable waterways. She received her Ph.D. in Earth and Environmental Science from Michigan State University, where she worked on nutrient transport modeling across the Great Lakes Basin and agricultural tile drainage mapping across the US Midwest region.

  • Philip Womble

    Philip Womble

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioPhilip Womble is an attorney and a hydrologist specializing in water policy and water markets. He is a legal/postdoctoral fellow with the Woods Institute for the Environment at Stanford University. Philip received his Ph.D. in Environment and Resources from Stanford and his J.D. from Stanford Law School, where his research evaluated optimal environmental water rights marketing in the Upper Colorado River Basin, barriers to water marketing in the state of Colorado, and Native American groundwater claims across the western United States. His work has been published in journals such as Science, Water Resources Research, and the Harvard Environmental Law Review. During graduate school, Philip worked for the Special Master in the U.S. Supreme Court interstate water dispute Montana v. Wyoming, The Nature Conservancy's Colorado River Program, and a water law firm. Before graduate school, he worked for the Environmental Law Institute in Washington, DC, where he analyzed the most established market for freshwater ecosystem services in the United States – wetland and stream compensatory mitigation under the Clean Water Act. Philip grew up in North Carolina, where he received his B.S. in Environmental Sciences from UNC-Chapel Hill.

  • Jessica Yu

    Jessica Yu

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioJessica Yu joined the Climate and Energy Policy Program (CEPP) and the Woods Institute for the Environment as a Postdoctoral Fellow in September 2022. Her current research focuses on the development of generalized public health guidance and best practices for protecting vulnerable populations from the health impacts of wildfire smoke. Working within an interdisciplinary team at CEPP, her goal is to continue applying and expanding her scientific skills to address the emerging threats of wildfire and other climate change-related policy challenges in California and beyond.

    Prior to joining Stanford, she completed her PhD in Population and Public Health at the University of British Columbia and an MSc in Global Health at McMaster University, where she worked on occupational and environmental health research with slum and mining communities in India and South Africa. Beyond academia, she's interested in learning how policy, technology, and social entrepreneurship can be leveraged to address inequalities in global environmental health and devise pro-equity and community-level solutions.

  • Xueying Yu

    Xueying Yu

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Earth System Science

    BioMy research interests include atmospheric chemistry, greenhouse gas emissions, satellite remote sensing retrievals, and carbon mitigation. I use inverse modeling and other data-driven approaches to address the above issues across multiple scales, in particular, to quantify methane emissions from point source level to the global budget.
