Principal InvestigatorAssistant Professor, EEB Cornell.


I am an ecosystem ecologist with broad interests in other related fields of ecology and Earth System Science. My research revolves around the role of vegetation in our Earth system and searches for quantitative frameworks to understand their ecophysiology and make predictions (e.g. theoretical and computational models). I am also interested in novel methods to characterize plant activities across different spatial and temporal scales such as ecological remote sensing.

Currently I teach BIOEE 1610 Introductory Biology: Ecology and the Environment and BIOEE 4940 Quantitative Methods in Ecology
