Elizaveta Litvak

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

My studies are focused on key uncertainties in eco-hydrologic processes of highly-altered, human-modified environments. They are relevant to municipal water conservation and development of sustainable urban landscapes.

My research interests lie in the interception of:

  • physiological plant ecology
  • urban ecology
  • eco-hydrology

Currently, I work on an inter-regional comparison of tree transpirational responses to environmental factors under different degrees of management.
