Fields of interest
Ecosystem ecology, forest photosynthesis, forest response to climate change, and imaging spectroscopy.
Description of scientific projects
Current projects include (1) "Quantifying leaf-to-landscape predictors of tropical forest drought vulnerability with observations from the International Space Station and mathematical models," a NASA ROSES project to leverage sensors deployed on the international space station to estimate tropical forest fluxes and drought response, and (2) "Cascade “Ecohydromics” in the Amazonian Headwater System," a NSF project to understand how rainforest species composition shapes landscape hydrology across topographic gradients. The OR AmeriFlux sites and experimental forests offer additional opportunites for forest carbon research.
