Head shot of Tadashi Fukami

Tadashi Fukami, Assistant Professor, Biology

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

I study how ecological communities assemble, with emphasis on historical contingency in community structure, ecosystem functioning, biological invasion and ecological restoration.


Margot  Gerritsen

Margot Gerritsen, Associate Professor; Director, Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering

Department of Energy Resources Engineering

Computer modeling and laboratory experiments of flows through porous media with particular emphasis on gas injection and in-situ combustion processes. Simulation of coastal ocean processes. Energy resources analysis. Computational mathematics with special interests in large scale linear and nonlinear solvers, and search algorithms.


Steven Gorelick, Cyrus F. Tolman Professor

Department of Environmental Earth System Science

Hydrogeology and Water Resources: Steven Gorelick is the Cyrus F. Tolman Professor in the Department of Environmental Earth System Science at Stanford, and Senior Fellow, Woods Institute for the Environment


Mark Granovetter head shot

Mark Granovetter, Joan Butler Ford Professor, Sociology

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

I study the sociology of economic institutions and industrial organization. Examples of current topics include the role of networks in the success of Silicon Valley and the history of the electricity industry.


Head shot of Elizabeth Hadly

Elizabeth Hadly, Professor, Biology

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

I study the evolution and ecology of vertebrates and the influence of the Holocene warming on their population biology; community assembly; and the history of living organisms in North and South America.


Dan Iancu

Dan Andrei Iancu, Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Business

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

The main focus of my research is providing new tools for understanding and computing decisions in complex operational settings. I am interested in both methodological aspects (general dynamic optimization under uncertainty, with an emphasis on robust and adaptive models, connections with risk and utility theory, statistics and machine learning), as well as applications: inventory and supply chain management, single and multi-product dynamic pricing, portfolio optimization (e.g., single-account rebalancing, fairness considerations in multi-account trading).


Head shot of Mark Jacobson

Mark Jacobson, Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering; Senior Fellow, Woods Institute for the Environment

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

My research seeks to understand physical, chemical, and dynamic processes in the atmosphere in order to address atmospheric problems such as climate change and urban air pollution, with improved scientific insight and more accurate predictive tools. I also evaluate the atmospheric effects of proposed solutions to climate change and air pollution and study optimal methods of combining renewable energy resources.


Head shot of James Holland Jones

James Holland Jones, Associate Professor, Anthropology

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

I am a biological anthropologist with interests in biodemography, life history theory, and the human ecology of infectious disease. I see studying both infectious disease and violence as necessary predicates for understanding the diversity of the human demographic experience.


Head shot of Terry Karl

Terry Karl, Gildred Professor in Latin American Studies, Political Science

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

I have published widely on comparative politics and international relations, with special emphasis on the politics of oil-exporting countries, transitions to democracy, problems of inequality, the global politics of human rights, and the resolution of civil wars.


Head shot of Donald Kennedy

Donald Kennedy, Former Stanford University President; Bing Professor of Environmental Science, Biology

Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources

My present research focuses on the development of policies regarding such trans-boundary environmental problems as major land-use changes, economically-driven alterations in agricultural practice, global climate change, and the development of regulatory policies.
