Sarah Cooley holds a bachelor’s degree in geological sciences from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a PhD in Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences from Brown University. Cooley’s research focuses on harnessing miniature satellites to remotely study greenhouse methane emissions from Arctic waters. She is passionate about building a stronger community of women and underrepresented minorities in her field and seeks opportunities to engage with, and learn from, the Indigenous Arctic residents of the regions she studies.  Cooley is currently an Assistant Professor of Geography at the University of Oregon. Congratulations to Sarah, the Stanford Science Fellows program's first alum!
