General Biology, Biology of Plants, Plant Physiology
Research in my lab focuses on the physiology and ecology of woody plants. I am generally interested in how biotic and abiotic factors influence the physiology of individuals and how physiological mechanisms regulate ecosystem processes. My primary areas of expertise fall within the domains of plant physiology, physiological ecology, biogeochemistry, ecosystem ecology, production ecology, and global change biology. Much of my research focuses on belowground processes and above-/belowground interactions related to carbon, nitrogen, and water cycling in forests. My research involves both short- and long-term experiments in natural and managed forest systems as well as greenhouses and growth chambers.
