I am responsible for operations and maintenance of eddy flux and carbon dioxide concentration towers, meteorological instruments, automated soil respiration chamber systems, and sap flux instruments. I also process the data collected from our tall CO2 concentration towers. These data are used to determine sources and sinks of atmospheric CO2 over measured regions in Oregon. I enjoy being in the field measuring physiological and ecological responses to variation in climate.
