Research in my lab focuses on transitions, thresholds, and feedbacks of the coupled ecosystem- climate system, or the ecoclimate. Our work is global in scale, considering the interactions between terrestrial ecosystems not only on their local environment, but also on other regions connected to the local ecosystem through atmospheric circulation. These interests lead to research questions such as:
- How will changes in agricultural area in the future feedback on climate?
- What processes control the response of climate to vegetation in different regions on the globe?
- What is the role of past plant distributions on circulation and precipitation?
