Frances studies hydroclimate in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University. She is interested in how climate change will affect precipitation extremes, flooding, and water availability. Her research also aims to quantify the impacts of extreme events on society. In addition, she is interested in understanding the efficacy of various adaptation strategies for managing hydrologic extremes (for example, floods and droughts). Previously, Frances worked as a civil engineer on a variety of flood risk reduction and ecosystem restoration projects in Colorado and around the U.S.
As a PhD candidate in Earth System Science, Elizabeth investigates the coupled human-natural system. She is interested in quantifying the effects of climate change on surface processes, human and ecosystem well-being, and shared socioeconomic outcomes and disparities, in addition to identifying at least Paris-compliant pathways. She holds an MS in Marine Science and a BS in Earth and Environmental Science. In addition to academic research and teaching experience, she previously served as an Energy Policy Analyst in San Diego, California.
Amina is a PhD student in the Earth Systems Science Department at Stanford University. Her work is primarily focused on understanding climate change risks, and the impacts of extreme temperatures on human systems. Her current work explores the influence of extreme heat events on small-scale mobility patterns, as well as global mapping projects of protected mountainous biodiversity hotspots
