I am a plant physiological ecologist interested in environmental and climate change impacts on carbon cycling. My research aims to scale quantitatively between leaf-level processes and ecosystem function with the goals of:
(1) understanding fundamental controls of carbon cycling in plants in changing environments;
(2) using field and experimental data to refine regional and global representations of carbon cycling;
(3) developing more informed projections of carbon cycling under future climate scenarios.
