Short Name: 

Bingwen Qiu

Bingwen Qiu's research interests focus on remote sensing time series methods for agricultural crops mapping. She has developed semi-automatic/automatic mapping methods for exploring spatiotemporal dynamics of paddy rice, winter wheat and maize in China during the past few decades. Future work will focus on the multi-dimensional characterization of croplands, the quantity, quality, cropping intensity, agricultural structures, crop planting as well as the management activities such as greenhouse and irrigation.

Candise Henry

Candise Henry is a researcher with a background in geology and geomorphology. Her previous work has examined the influence of externally- versus internally-driven geological processes on sediment deposition and basin architecture at passive margins for use in oil and gas exploration. She also has an interest in energy systems, and has published research looking at the impacts of climate change on thermoelectric power production in the U.S. She will join the Caldeira Lab at the Carnegie Institution in January of 2019 to research efforts towards near-zero emissions energy systems.

Rachel Carlson

Rachel Carlson is a PhD student in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources. Rachel graduated from Rice University in 2011 with a master's degree in engineering and bachelor's degree in English. She also holds a master's degree in international politics from Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). Prior to joining Stanford, Rachel worked for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for four years, where she led mapping and outreach programs to protect coastal ecosystems and watersheds.

Vanessa Maciel

I'm an undergraduate student double majoring in Earth Sciences and Environmental Studies at UC Santa Cruz. Currently, at Carnegie, I am analyzing the precipitation output from a climate simulation with aerosols conducted in the Community Atmosphere Model 5. My research is focused on Indonesia's precipitation rate response to aerosols emitted locally versus those emitted from 7 other regions, independently (China, India, East Africa, South Africa, European Union, and United States).

Karine Prado

Karine Prado studied Biology Science at the University of Montpellier 2 (France) where she obtained an MRes in Plant Functional Biology then a prestigious doctoral fellowship from INRA in 2010 (Contrat Jeune Scientifique). Prado's Ph.D. was carried out at INRA of Montpellier under the supervision of Dr Christophe Maurel and was aimed to determine the molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling the hydraulic properties of the Arabidopsis thaliana rosette, focusing on the role of water channel proteins in response to environmental stresses.

James Askew

James' research focuses on Indonesian forest conservation and ecology. His interests include mapping and monitoring of above ground carbon stocks, animal-landscape interactions, protected area designation and management, and mechanisms for increasing conservation efficacy.

James primarily works in the Leuser Ecosystem; spanning 2.6 million Ha across Aceh and North Sumatra provinces, it is the largest remaining contiguous forest in southeast Asia and the last stronghold for critically endangered Sumatran elephants, orangutans, rhino, and tigers.
