Career Highlights
  • Principal investigator: Estimating the distribution of SOC stocks of permafrost regions; incorporating spatial heterogeneity and pedogenic processes in Earth system models; evaluating environmental sustainability of regional-scale cellulosic bioenergy production; developing geospatial approaches to quantify human and climate impacts to soil systems.
  • Postdoctoral research: Combining process-based and geospatial models to predict SOC flux due to land use change; using geospatial approaches to predict climate change impacts to the permafrost SOC pool.
  • Author & Editor: Author of several peer-reviewed publications. Associate editor of Agronomy Journal (American Society of Agronomy publication), and Vadose Zone Journal (Soil Science Society of America publication).
