Current Research

Remote sensing of patterns in ecosystem resilience. Focus on phenology variability, responses and trajectories over interannual and landscape scales spanning the Continental US.

Research Interests

Past Research

  • Geostatistics for decision support: surface containment for CCS (gas seepage)
  • Plant-climate interactions, analytics of in situ environmental data, eddy covariance: Chequamegon Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (ChEAS)
  • Biosphere-atmosphere modeling: CarbonTracker, inverse atmospheric transport modeling
  • Upscaling/downscaling for bridging gaps between models and observations: COMDAST
