    BioMy research focuses on multi-scale effects of global change on vegetation and carbon cycling in ecosystems. In the past, I have investigated the influence of drought, permafrost thaw or warming on above and belowground plant dynamics, greenhouse gas fluxes and litter decomposition. I am also interested in regional to global-scale drivers of carbon sequestration. My toolkit draws from ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry and systems thinking and I specialize in carbon-rich systems such as northern peatlands.

    My postdoctoral research in the Jackson lab focuses on 1) global upscaling of greenhouse gas fluxes from peatlands and 2) the fate of root-derived carbon in soils from continental to global scales.
