Wu Sun is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Michalak Lab. His research aims to understand patterns and variability in terrestrial photosynthesis through the synergy between observations and process-based models. He is currently using geostatistical approaches to constrain the patterns of photosynthesis in North America.
Enrico is a Postdoctoral Research Scientist for the Carnegie Institution for Science, Department of Global Ecology at Stanford University. His research aims to understand the physics of wind power extraction for regional-scale wind farms. Enrico is investigating how the wind farm power extraction changes with the wind farm size and he aims to identify the transition scales at which this change occurs.
Having graduated in Vocal Performance from Trinity College, London, Elizabeth traveled to St. Louis to pursue a career in music. Eventually, she found her way with her family to California, drawn by the lovely weather and magnificent Pacific Ocean. When not doing yoga, gardening, or walking her black Labrador, she can be found at Davies Symphony Hall singing with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus. She is excited to be part of the Carnegie Institution for Science, department of global ecology, supporting Ken Caldeira and his awesome group of postdocs.
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.
