Cory Cleveland - University of Montana

Cory is an ecosystem ecologist interested in how terrestrial ecosystems function. Much of the work in my lab focuses on carbon-nutrient interactions and how nutrients constrain carbon fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems. For more about my own work or contact information, please visit his website.

Sasha Reed - U.S. Geological Survey

Sasha a research ecologist focused on understanding how our nation's ecosystems work and what factors affect the services they provide. The study sites and methods Sasha uses are diverse, and with each of her projects she strives to provide scientific information that helps our nation address challenges, solve problems, and maximize opportunities. For more information about Sasha and her work, please visit her website.

Fiona Soper - Cornell University

Fiona is an ecosystem ecologist, specializing in plant ecophysiology and biogeochemistry. Her research explores how plant traits influence ecosystem processes such as soil nutrient cycling, gas emissions, productivity and land cover change across a range of ecosystems from deserts to rainforests. For more information about her work, please visit her website.

Will Wieder - NCAR

With training as an experimental soil biogeochemist, Will is interested in studying global biogeochemical cycles by evaluating and improving Earth System models by incorporating ecological theory and observations. For more information about my work, please visit his website.

Yingping Wang - CSIRO (Australia)

Yingping completed his PhD in plant ecophysiology from University of Edinburgh in 1988, and moved to CSIRO, Australian in 1990. He is a chief research scientist in CSIRO since 2015 and one of the two key scientists responsible for developing the Australian community land surface model (CABLE) that has over 100 registered users from 51 institutions in 13 countries. His major achievements include the development of the Australian community land model (CABLE), two-leaf canopy scheme, the unified theory of global nitrogen fixation, and the first global model of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycles. For more information about his work, please visit his website.

Ivan Janssens - University of Antwerp

Ivan is a professor in the Plant and Vegetation Ecology research group at the University of Antwerp (Belgium). His interests lie in the areas of climate change, carbon and nutrient cycling, and global change biogeochemistry. Ivan is also a lead PI on the IMBALANCE-P project, a complementary, European-led effort to assess the effects of phosphorus limitations on life, the Earth system, and society. For more information about Ivan's work, please visit his website.
