Caroline Alexa Famiglietti
Ph.D. Student in Earth System Science
BioCaroline Famiglietti is a first-year PhD student working with Prof. Alexandra Konings. She is interested in using remote sensing technologies to assess large-scale interactions between the carbon and water cycles. In 2017, Caroline graduated summa cum laude from UCLA with a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and a minor in Geography/Environmental Studies. Prior to graduate school, Caroline worked in the Carbon Cycle & Ecosystems group at NASA JPL (with Josh Fisher) from 2017-2018 and in the UC Berkeley Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering (with Sally Thompson) in 2016.

My field is global ecology, and my research emphasizes ecological contributions across the range of Earth science disciplines. My colleagues and I develop diverse approaches to quantifying large-scale ecosystem processes, using satellites, atmospheric data, models, and census data, and explore global-scale patterns of vegetation-climate feedbacks, carbon cycle dynamics, primary production, forest management, and fire. At the ecosystem-scale, we conduct experiments on grassland responses to global change, which integrate approaches from molecular biology to remote sensing.
I am one of five professors who teach the Earth Systems field studies course for advanced undergrads and co-terms at Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve. I also teach an introductory seminar on climate change for freshmen.
