My work uses remote sensing and ecosystem modeling to answer questions like: How can we feed the world without running out of water? How can we adapt agricultural practices to climate change? and What types of deforestation mitigation polices are most effective? We are particularly interested in mapping and characterizing human-induced changes to plants, and figuring out what these changes mean for food, water, and carbon in a changing climate.
