Michael Mastrandrea Stanford Woods Institute Consulting Assistant Professor

My research centers on scientific questions with political and societal implications and their accurate and effective translation for the general public and policy makers in particular. Specifically, my research focuses on climate vulnerability and impacts assessment as a tool for risk management of climate change. I also explore the implications of climate policy choices given the uncertainty inherent in future projections of climate change and climate impacts.

Cynthia Natalie McClain PhD Candidate Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences

McClain investigates the distribution and coupled cycling of heavy metals (such as chromium) and nutrients (such as nitrogen) in groundwater and soils. These investigations explore how humans are changing elemental cycling on Earth by comparing pristine regions to areas influenced by agriculture, mining or development. Her research quantifies chemical transformations and physical flow of water, working toward a molecular-level understanding of field-scale environmental processes. McClain conducts field, laboratory and modeling studies using imaging, isotopic, x-ray, microbiological, statistical and data visualization techniques. She is currently researching groundwater quality in California’s Central Valley.
