Official position at address above: Research Ecologist
Educational Institutions attended: PhD, 1991, University of Minnesota
MS, 1983, University of Washington
BS, 1976, University of Minnesota
Roles/Affiliations: Courtesy Faculty, Dept of Forest Science, Oregon State University
Long-Term Ecological Research (HJA, KNZ, ARC, CDR)
Principal Collaborators: Biogeochemistry and watershed modeling folks
General Interests: Use of stable isotopes & process-based models for analyzing effects of land use and climate change on terrestrial biogeochemistry, hydrology, and plant community dynamics
Current Research Projects/Activities: Modeling the effects of land use and climate change on ecosystem services (carbon sequestration, water quality and quantity, etc.)--scaling up from plots to regions, days to centuries
Intersite LTER/International Activities: Cross-biome comparision of how C-N-H2O interactions at multiple scales restrict ecosystem responses to global change--a modeling synthesis of empirical studies for the HJ Andrews, Konza Prairie, and Arctic LTER sites.
