For prospective students

I advise graduate (MS and PhD) and undergraduate students in the Environmental Engineering Program and PhD students in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources. If you are interested in pursuing graduate studies with me at Stanford, I recommend that you visit either or both of these program websites to familiarize yourself with the admission requirements and processes. Admission to both programs is quite competitive. Also note that financial aid for graduate students is rather limited, so I strongly suggest that you apply to any external fellowship programs for which you are eligible. I have compiled a list of some fellowship resources on my website.
Next, please have a look at my group’s current research focus areas and recent publications. If you feel that your background and research interests are well aligned with my group, feel free to contact me via email at In your message, please include information about your background and research experience, academic and professional goals, and research interests. Please also include a copy of your CV and something you have written.
