Ecological dynamics of terrestrial plant communities and ecosystems; biosphere-atmosphere interactions; mechanistic models of animal movement.

I am interested in carbon dynamics of forest ecosystems. My research includes 1) assimilating remote sensing data into the Ecosystem Demography (ED) model, and 2) estimating carbon, energy, and water fluxes. Besides forests, I am also interested in studying the dynamics of dryland ecosystems using process-based land surface models.

I am interested in quantifying anthropogenic damage to forest ecosystems, particularly logging and fires. My research involves using both ground and light detection and ranging (Lidar) data for allometric calculations and creating terrain and canopy models for forest sites in the western United States, including the Pacific Northwest and Southwest. I am also interested in fish population dynamics, as part of a project on managing overfishing in Belize.
