Departmental Research Areas:
The research aims to better understand the cycles of carbon nitrogen and other nutrients in land ecosystems using modeling tools. Such understanding is critical since humans interfere with the natural biogeochemical cycles through pollution and fertilizers and land-use directly, or indirectly through anthropogenic climate change. While these stressors threaten the health of terrestrial ecosystems, a central question is how nutrient cycles and climate affect the capacity of terrestrial biosphere to sequester fossil CO2.
