Research Interests

My expertise and interests include the study of climate impacts to water resources and ecosystems; water, energy and carbon cycle interactions; remote sensing; hydrological and ecosystem process modeling. My research activities integrate ecological theory, field measurements and emerging technologies including satellite remote sensing, and computer modeling to describe the function, distribution and condition of vegetation and underlying environmental drivers across the landscape. I emphasize an ecosystem perspective for understanding physical and biological processes and interactions, integrating across disciplines and various scales. See Google Scholar for a complete listing of my publications.
