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.

Yixuan Zheng

Yixuan is a postdoctoral research fellow at Ken Caldeira’s lab focusing on energy-related issues, including clean energy transition,  energy-induced air pollution and climate change. His previous works analyzed drivers of China’s aerosol pollution. These studies indicated, for him, the role of energy transition in resolving energy-related pollutions, and further motivated his work at Carnegie.

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.

Lee Anderegg

Leander studies the biogeographic, demographic and biogeochemical implications of tree responses to climate change. He combines methods from community ecology, dendrochronology, plant ecophysiology, and stable isotope biogeochemistry to understand the sensitivity of forests in the western U.S.A. and Australia to various global change drivers.

Mary Whelan

The goal of my work is to use innovative tools to quantify important fluxes in the carbon cycle that we cannot measure directly. To do this, I combine soil science, atmospheric chemistry, and a little bit of plant physiology. My most promising tracer at the moment is a gas called carbonyl sulfide. It looks very similar to carbon dioxide and can interact with the same enzymes in plant leaves. By understanding the exchange of carbonyl sulfide with components of ecosystems (e.g.

Yoichi Shiga

Yoichi's work explores carbon cycle dynamics at regional to continental scales focusing on improving our understanding of both anthropogenic and natural fluxes of carbon using a combination of atmospheric trace gas measurements, remote sensing, and spatiotemporal statistical data fusion methods.
