research overview

  • For the past 20 years I have been working as a scientist to support sustainable land management and restoration of a broad variety of ecosystems throughout the world. My research mission is to better understand the fundamental ecological processes that influence the structure and function of dryland ecosystems and the resilience of these ecosystems to human and natural disturbance. In my research group, we employ a variety of techniques in the fields of soil biogeochemistry, terrestrial plant ecology, and dendrochronology to address questions that not only further our knowledge of dryland ecosystems, but also address contemporary issues in the management of these systems.
