  • How are the exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapor and methane between ecosystems and the atmosphere mediated by land cover change, complex terrain, forest management, and disturbance?
  • Can global climate and ecosystem models adequately explain regional carbon exchange in complex regions?
  • When do variations in soil moisture and land cover affect the atmospheric boundary layer, dynamics of the hydrologic cycle, cloud formation, and precipitation?

These are the kinds of questions that I work on in my research. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Keywords: global and regional carbon cycle, micrometeorology, atmospheric boundary-layer, surface-atmosphere trace gas exchange, hydrologic cycle, remote sensing, forest ecology, soil-vegetation-atmosphere continuum, biogeochemistry, human-society-environment relations, climate change
