Elizaveta Litvak

I am a postdoctoral fellow at Urban Ecology Research Lab, University of Utah
.
I earned PhD and MS in Earth System Science at the University of California, Irvine and MS (equivalent) in Physics at Moscow State University (Russia).

My research is focused on transpiration of urban trees and turfgrass and understanding physiological and environmental controls on transpiration variability. Currently, I work on systematizing, modeling and scaling up urban transpiration in Los Angeles and other regions.

My research helps constrain urban water budgets, improves understanding of plant water relations and provides useful information for developing water-wise urban landscapes.
