Biographical Summary

My research focuses on applying quantitative analysis techniques to flux uncertainty problem. I link eddy covariance data to multi-model ensemble means to estimate actual CO2 fluxes and flux uncertainty within a Monte Carlo framework. I am also interested in evaluating land model performance and impacts of land cover and land change on estimates of carbon exchange.
