Undergraduate Research Fellow
Tanvi  Gambhir

As a student of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Tanvi is passionate about expanding access to clean energy and water. As a rising senior, she helped design and install a solar energy system for a nature reserve station in rural China. This past summer she interned with the California Department of Water Resources in their Power and Risk Office, writing a white paper on the financial impacts of forecasted solar penetration and subsidence on water delivery. Additionally she was a Schneider Fellow with the U.S. Green Building Council, where she conducted product analyses to help the organization transition to an hourly carbon emissions rather than a yearly carbon emissions accountability system. At Stanford, she worked with the biogeochemistry lab, residential & dining enterprises, and Bill Lane Center on projects related to clean water, water conservation, and water policy. Moving forward, Tanvi wants to work on environmental issues such as improving building efficiency, modifying the nation’s electric grid to handle increasing renewable penetration, and increasing equitable allocation of water.
