I study the global water cycle, focusing on how the terrestrial ecosystem influences and is influenced by the physical climate system. My research tools are numerical models of different complexities, ranging from 1-dimensional simple models to more complex earth system models. I often work with researchers who make measurements to improve our understanding of the interplay among different components of the climate system.
