Research Assistant Professor
Ph.D. University of New Hampshire
I use climate models, observations, and remote sensing to understand how landscapes interact with surface climate. Specifically, my research focuses on how changes in land cover (i.e. deforestation) influence surface temperature and fluxes of energy and water.
I also seek out interdisciplinary projects with economists to understand how decreases in snow affect the multi-billion dollar winter sports industry and how we might place economic value on albedo as an climate regulating ecosystem service.
I was previously a Visiting Scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research and a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of New Hampshire in the Terrestrial Ecosystem Analysis Lab.
