Short Name: 

Michael Dioha

Michael Dioha is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Carnegie Institution for Science Department of Global Ecology, located at the Stanford University campus. His main research areas include energy system analysis & modelling and socioeconomic development for a sustainable energy transition. Michael develops integrated energy system models to examine the techno-economic implications of alternative energy strategies, and how they might be shaped for a coherent and sustainable energy future.

Julian Merder

With the help of mathematical models and statistics I try to tackle ecological questions ranging from molecular up to global scales. During my PhD, I developed statistical techniques and software to improve the performance of ultrahigh-resolution mass spectrometry and derived new ways to link the composition of dissolved organic matter to biotic and abiotic factors.

Wu Sun

Wu Sun is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Michalak Lab at the Department of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institution for Science. His research aims to understand the variability of terrestrial carbon fluxes across scales by leveraging leaf-scale, atmospheric, and space-borne observations, terrestrial biosphere models, and atmospheric inverse modeling. His current research uses atmospheric observations and remotely sensed photosynthetic proxies to constrain space-time patterns of North American carbon fluxes from divergent model estimates.

Enrico Antonini

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 the efficiency of large wind farms and which physical parameters control their power extraction.

David Farnham

David Farnham is an environmental engineer and hydroclimatologist interested in how climate affects our engineered water and energy systems. David’s work can broadly be described as the development of statistical models to estimate and/or predict climate risks at time scales ranging from daily to seasonal to multi-decadal.

Lei Duan

Lei Duan's research topic is about modeling the climate response to external forcing, especially the global scale geoengineering schemes during his PhD. At Carnegie, he will continue working on climate simulations and also helping with the energy modeling work in Ken Caldeira's group. He had a wonderful experience when he was here previously, and feels happy to come back and work with everyone in Carnegie. 

Manoela Romano de Orte

Manoela Romanó de Orte is a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in in the Caldeira Lab at the Carnegie Institution for Science's Department of Global Ecology. She is a marine scientist, studying the fate and the effects of pollutants in the coastal environment. Her research considers traditional pollutants, such as heavy metals, alongside emerging contaminant threats.
