Global diagnostic models
My work has focused on how plants use water, including investigating how carbon and water cycles interact, as well as estimating transpiration across a wide variety of ecosystems. I primarly use a data driven approach which utilizes machine learning, but is also guided by physiological understanding. Currently, I'm working with the FLUXCOM team to produce the next generation of global data driven estimates of terrestrial carbon, energy, and water fluxes.
