I am interested in the feedback cycles of global climate change and ecosystem carbon cycles via changes in ecosystem structure.
I have been working in two of the most highly vulnerable ecosystems to climate change, the arctic and the desert, as model systems to understand how climate driven changes in landscape structure such as soil properties and hydrology, influence ecosystem carbon balance.
Currently, I am working on improving permafrost characteristics within the Community Land Model to improve the applicability of thawing permafrost and its influence on carbon cycling using climate models.
