I am an ecosystem ecologist interested in the controls over fluxes of energy and materials through ecosystems. I am particularly interested in the interactions between organisms and the physical environment that regulate the structure, function, and development of terrestrial ecosystems.My research focuses on the interaction between carbon cycling in ecosystems and climate change. I am particularly interested in the exchange of carbon between plants, soils, and the atmosphere, and the response to changes in climate and disturbance regimes. My research program uses isotopes and environmental gradients as powerful approaches towards understanding basic patterns and processes in ecosystems . I use field and lab experiments to address research questions at the ecosystem scale, and environmental gradients to apply these results in a landscape-scale context.
