Professional Positions:
  • Post-doc research associate, University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH

  • Research Interests and Activities:
    I\'m interested in ecosystem ecology and global change. Specifically, the goal of my research is to better understand impacts of natural and anthropogenic stressors (e.g., climate change, forest management, nitrogen deposition, and land use change) on terrestrial carbon, nitrogen, and water dynamics. Current research is focused on the development and application of a process-based ecosystem model (PnET-CN) in continental-scale combing eddy covariance measurements and remote-sensing data.
