Research interests:

My research focuses on bridging the disciplines of atmospheric science, ecology and biogeochemistry, from both observation-based and modelling perspectives,in order to better understand inter-annual to decadal variability in the global carbon-cycle. Specific topics include land-atmosphere interactions, the role of internal climate variability and ocean-atmosphere-land teleconnections in controlling carbon-cycle dynamics, the impacts of climate extremes on ecosystem functioning and ecosystem disturbance regimes.

Climate-ecosystem interactions; ecosystem disturbances; global carbon cycle modelling and monitoring; climate variability & extremes; remote-sensing of vegetation
