CLimate, Atmosphere and Ocean Dynamics (CLAOD) Seminar

Our department has a weekly informal seminar series on Tuesdays at 3pm. If you plan to be in the Bay Area on a Tuesday and have some interesting CLAOD-related work that you'd like to share, please let me know and I will check availability. With enough warning, we would be happy to host you (including students and postdocs) for a day visit.

PhD Students and Postdocs

**Note for application season 2020: I don't currently have funding for an additional PhD student so I don't have plans to accept a student for Fall 2021. There could potentially be an exception if an applicant receives other funding, for example from Stanford's Knight-Hennessy Scholars program or another fellowship.**

I am always interested in recruiting hardworking, creative doctoral students and postdocs. Competitive PhD candidates come from a range of quantitative majors (e.g., physics, meteorology), and will have strong records in physics and mathematics classes in order to capably tackle questions in geophysical fluid dynamics. A record of independent research is very desirable. Be sure to keep deadlines and mandatory exams in mind:, and note that the GRE is optional.

Fellowship opportunities

Our lab is limited by funding, and I encourage potential future lab members to start applying for fellowships right away. Please contact me if you'd like me to sponsor a fellowship application (where applicable).

Undergraduate Opportunities

I am eager to work with Stanford undergraduates who are interested in a research project. Feel free to contact me and set up a meeting if you'd like to get involved with our work, and we can explore whether there is a suitable project for your interests and strengths. I encourage undergraduates at other institutions who are interested in working in our lab for a summer to apply to Stanford's Summer Undergraduate Research in Geoscience and Engineering Program (SURGE) - please notify me of your interest in advance.

Lab Policy on Free Labor

Unfortunately, we do not allow any members to conduct research without receiving either academic credit, a stipend or a research award. Therefore we are unable to accept volunteer research of any kind.
