Undergraduate and Masters students

If you are a current Stanford undergraduate or MS student interested in gaining research experience at the intersection of remote sensing and earth system science, send me an e-mail at We can talk about several project options to find one that would interest you. 

Prospective PhD students

Prospective students wishing to pursue a PhD in our group are encouraged to e-mail Alex at Please include a CV. Students should apply to the PhD program in Earth System Science. The deadline for the program is in early December. Please mention that you are interested in working with me on your application - this will help the evaluation process. Either before or during their tenure at Stanford, students are encouraged to apply for national fellowships. Students with strong quantitative backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
