Terrestial Ecosystems and Climate Modeling
Dr. David Medvigy
Associate Professor of Biological Sciences
Research Interests: I study the responses of terrestrial ecosystems to climate variability and change. I am interested in a wide range of ecosystem types and consider time scales from the diel to the multi-decadal. My usual approach employs numerical models to evaluate ideas related to ecosystem functioning.
Dr. Annette Trierweiler
Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Princeton University
Research Interests: Ecosystem modeling of tropical forests, tropical nitrogen fixation under global change, improving biogeochemical modeling in ecosystem models, global change, water and soil biogeochemistry
Dr. Dohyoung Kim
Ph.D. in Environment
Research Interests: I am interested in ecophysiological responses of plants to changes in physical environment. My research interests include plant physiology, terrestrial carbon and water cycle, forest ecosystem ecology, and ecosystem modeling.
