Research: I study the exchanges of carbon, water, and energy between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere with a focus on scaling and model-data synthesis. I am broadly trained in forest ecology, plant physiology, remote sensing and ecosystem science. My research has taken me to a number of locations from the high arctic to boreal forests of northern Manitoba, Canada, temperate and boreal forests of Upper Midwest, to Mediterranean and agricultural ecosystems across California. I am particularly interested in the relationships between carbon and nutrient cycling of terrestrial ecosystems and the impacts of disturbance and global change on the structure and functioning of vegetation. My research leverages a number of tools including leaf and imaging spectroscopy, novel quantitative methods, and ecosystem modeling to effectively scale process knowledge.
