DGE Visiting Investigators

Short Name: 

Kelsey Foster

Kelsey is a first year PhD student in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford. She is broadly interested in the impacts of greenhouse gas emissions on different components of the Earth system. More specifically, she is interested in studying biospheric carbon flux variability and anthropogenic methane emissions. Her prior research focused on quantifying anthropogenic methane emissions in California, with a focus on emissions from oil refineries.

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.

Joe Berry

Joe Berry’s work is focused on photosynthesis and associated processes (exchange of gases, fluorescence, remote sensing, ecophysiology) at a hierarchy of scales from the chloroplasts to the planet. His goal is to distill this information into equations that can be used in models to represent these processes in the complex webs of interacting processes that comprise the Biosphere of planet Earth. The focus is on understanding and representing the fundamental mechanisms so that our models give the right behavior and also help us understand why. Dr.

David Knapp

Dave's interests are in the development of algorithms for processing digital imagery and extracting data from hyperspectral imagery. He supports lab technicians and post-docs on image processing and remote sensing techniques to support scientific investigations.

He develops map products of land cover, land use change, and coral using imagery collected from satellite and aircraft sensors.

Specialties: Programming, Image Processing, Remote Sensing

Nina Randazzo

Nina is a Stanford PhD candidate who researches carbon dioxide exchange between the atmosphere and terrestrial biosphere. She is particularly interested in how climatological and meteorological systems influence biospheric carbon balance.

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.

Philip Brodrick

Phil Brodrick is a systems modeler who uses computational optimization and statistical learning to explore interactions within earth and energy systems. His research questions span a wide range of issues centered on the mitigation of global change, including the impact of natural and anthropogenic hazards on terrestrial carbon sinks, the distribution and influence of invasive species within ecosystems, the effective design of low-carbon power plants, and the widespread adoption of energy efficiency measures.
