Update: In February 2022, I'll be joining the Carnegie Institution for Science's Department of Global Ecology at Stanford University as a principal investigator. I have openings for two postdocs to join my group. Please contact me if interested.


                 1) Postdoctoral scholar in sustainable agriculture and climate change

                 2) Postdoctoral scholar in climate mitigation and biomass-based carbon dioxide removal solutions

I am an environmental scientist and engineer studying climate change mitigation and adaptation solutions to food, energy, and water systems. My work aims to understand and find ways to address the challenge of meeting global demand for energy and food while averting environmental impacts. My focus spans across the fields of: i) sustainable food systems and adaptation of agriculture to global warming, ii) climate change mitigation via carbon dioxide removal solutions,    iii) energy and environment, and iv) water resources management and hydrology.

I am a postdoctoral fellow at ETH Zurich in the Institute of Energy and Process Engineering. Here, I am assessing the carbon dioxide removal potential of bio-energy with carbon capture and storage. I obtained my PhD at the University of California Berkeley, where I wrote my dissertation titled "Water limits to food and energy systems in the 21st century". For my contribution to science, I was named in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, awarded with the AGU Horton Hydrology Research grant, and the AGU Science for Solutions Award
