Miles Traer is a geological data scientist studying planetary surface evolution at Stanford University. He uses physics, statistics, and stunningly high-resolution data to investigate the physical processes that create and shape landscapes, with a particular interest in Earth's seafloor.
In addition to his research, Miles created the award-winning Generation Anthropocene podcast to explore the myriad ways humans interact with geological and biological systems. In his spare time, you can often find Miles practicing card magic, drawing science cartoons, recreating the geological history of Game of Thrones, or calculating the carbon footprint of superheroes. He will defend his love of the White Stripes with viking-like zeal.
