Senior Staff Scientist/ Ecosystem Ecologist

“I am an ecosystem ecologist who uses a variety of field and laboratory techniques to understand and predict how ecosystems are shaped by climatic change. Specifically, I work at the root-soil interface to investigate how atmospheric and climatic change alters belowground carbon and nutrient cycling.

My science takes me to a number of interesting and beautiful ecosystems from bogs to temperate forests to Arctic tundra, and I lead a team that curates the largest root trait database in the world, FRED.”
