Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch
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.

Masters Student in Environment and Resources
Juris Doctor Student, Law
BioSavannah studies the intersection of environmental and indigenous law, focusing on Native American rights.
Her Master's research is focused around subsistence practices in Northwest Arctic Alaska and the advocating for the reflection of traditional norms into federal regulations surrounding access and subsistence. Upon graduation in June 2018, Savannah will move to Fairbanks, where she will clerk for the Honorable Justice Carney on the Alaska Supreme Court.

BioJenna is a PhD student in the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment and Resources and has a Master's in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Washington. Her research brings together principles of environmental science, epidemiology, and behavior change. She hopes to develop and evaluate interventions to minimize exposures to contaminants and disease vectors in households in low-income countries. Her most recent research on lead contamination in food has brought her to Bangladesh.
