My scientific interests are focused on biogeochemistry and nutrient cycling in agricultural and other managed ecosystems. I utilize field observations and experimental results to develop and evaluate ecophysiological models. I also use models to predict how carbon, nitrogen, and water cycles will be affected by global change and agriculture. I apply knowledge of these interactions to support development and management of efficient and sustainable ecosystems.
