Ecohydrology; Forest Ecology; Tree Physiology; Catchment Ecohydrology
My research focuses on the response of tree growth and physiology to variable climate conditions and topographic complexity (surface and subsurface) in Colorado semi-arid forests. Specifically, I look at how climate, drought, and surface and subsurface topographic variability influences physiological function of abundant Colorado semi-arid species and how this knowledge can be used to predict the response of common Colorado tree species to climate change.
