I am currently working on two main projects.  The first project concerns the basis for and nature of the state's obligation to provide an education to its citizens.  The second project concerns the relationship between markets and social equality.  I am especially interested in the ways that markets can support, but also undermine, the relationship between citizens as equal members of a democratic society.

Nikhil Sawe Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources

Through functional MRI, neuroeconomics analyzes the financial decision-making process at the level of discrete brain structures, allowing insights into the way we think about and route information. Nik's research adapts neuroeconomics techniques to assess decision-making in environmental questions.

Yongduk Shin Ph.D. Student in Energy Resources Engineering

I am interested on investigating the effects of geological uncertainty on reservoir responses on both production and seismic responses. the geological uncertainty specifically investigating are uncertainty on how the structure has been deformed, and how the mode of rock accommodation on given deformation. Geomodels created from properly chosen set of geological scenario may give a better understand on how the reservoir may behave.

I am currently working on three projects in New Zealand: using 3D seismic data to document the evolution of submarine gullies on the Pliocene-Pleistocene continental slope; detailed outcrop analysis and petrography to investigate sedimentation of a volcaniclastic submarine fan system in Late Miocene time; and detrital zircon U-Pb dating in Miocene-Pliocene basin strata to constrain sediment sources and flow pathways across the North Island during development of the modern tectonic regime.

Anne Siders Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources

Siders studies the role of governance and institutional design in the integration of climate change adaptation and disaster risk mitigation in the coastal built environment. Her research is geographically diverse, including Europe, coastal megacities, the Arctic, and South East Asia. Her work focuses on providing information, tools, and processes that aid decision-makers in building international coastal resilience.

Itamar Simonson University Faculty Graduate School of Business - Faculty Professor

Itamar Simonson’s research includes consumer decision making, buyer behavior, consumer evaluation of brands and promotional offers, marketing management, and survey methods. Some of Simonson’s studies demonstrate a variety of seemingly irrelevant and irrational influences on consumers' decisions. These studies introduce a new perspective on consumer behavior and suggest more effective approaches to the design of market research investigations and marketing strategies.

George Somero David and Lucile Packard Professor in Marine Science, Emeritus

We examine two aspects of organism-environment interactions: How does stress from physical (e.g., temperature) and chemical (oxygen levels, pH) factors perturb organisms and how do organisms respond, adaptively, to cope with this stress? We examine evolutionary adaptation and phenotypic acclimatization using a wide variety of marine animals, including Antarctic fishes and invertebrates from intertidal habitats on the coastlines of temperate and tropical seas.

Wen Song Ph.D. Student in Energy Resources Engineering

My research interests involve developing and using microfluidic platforms to visualize pore-scale flow phenomena relevant to reservoir engineering. Secondary and tertiary recovery can cause clay particles to detach from the rock matrix and block subsequent pore space, significantly reducing reservoir permeability. Currently, I am conducting experiments to visualize the impact of brine composition and salt concentration on the release of clay particles from the rock matrix.
