I am a physical geographer, geospatial scientist, and ecoclimatologist. I use satellites and tree rings to examine responses of terrestrial ecosystems to global change, especially in North American drylands.

MY LATEST RESEARCH

Map-bars-response-type-species.tif

Forest growth in the U.S. responds asymmetrically to precipitation, implying reductions in tree growth as precipitation variability increases with warming.

ndvi-sif-vod-som-map.tif

We developed a set of phenologically-distinct ecoregions based on self-organizing maps and NDVI, solar-induced fluorescence, and vegetation optical depth.
