I am investigating the interaction between climate
system and biosphere. Forests, for example, that
grow as a result of a certain level of precipitation,
generate moisture in the atmosphere through
evapotranspiration, and this contributes to
precipitation levels in that same region.
My research group is focused on interactions of this
sort in terrestrial ecosystems, involving the flow of
energy and materials through the atmosphere,
plants and soil.
