As an environmental scientist with a background in physical geography and physics my research focuses on the atmospheric exchange of carbon, water, and energy of ecosystems. A major dimension of this work is to understand how these exchanges respond to disturbances such as droughts, fires, and anthropogenic interventions and, most importantly, a changing climate. I apply models to explore atmospheric dynamics and carbon cycle processes. The models include the Weather Research and Forecast model (WRF), various Lagrangian transport models, the Community land model (CLM) as well as neural network models.
