Research Interests

  • Biosphere-atmosphere exchange over fragmented landscapes (observation and modeling)
  • Strategies to scale-up ecosystem fluxes to large regions
  • Spatial aggregation of turbulent fluxes, modeling of subgridscale variability
  • Source area / footprint modeling for turbulent exchange observations over complex terrain
  • Boundary layer meteorology, boundary layer development over complex surfaces (observation and modeling)
  • Experimental design and measurement of turbulent surface-atmosphere exchange processes over complex surfaces
