I am an ecohydrologic modeler, by training, that works within the realms of hydrology and hydrometeorology, terrestrial ecology, and remote sensing to advance understanding of the role terrestrial ecosystems play in modulating weather and climate in a changing world. I use a suite of modeling tools – some simple and some extremely complex – along with remote sensing and field data, and data fusion and assimilation methods. With this toolbox, I quantify sensitivities of ecohydrologic systems to anthropogenic, and predict attributes of ecosystem structure and function in response to climate and disturbance. Increasingly, my research focuses on understanding and quantifying the feedbacks between natural and human systems, particularly the role that land management activities and decision play in modulating regional hydroclimate.
