I will be starting as an assistant professor at the University of Washington in 2012. You will be re-directed to my new website at UW in 10 seconds.

about me:

I am currently a Post-doctoral Fellow at Harvard University. I am analyzing potential thresholds in the ecoclimate of the Amazon forest and agricultural regions in Brazil with respect to deforestation and the spread of agriculture within the forest. My faculty hosts at Harvard are Paul Moorcroft, Steve Wofsy, and John Briscoe.

I recieved my PhD from the Department of Earth & Planetary Science at the University of California Berkeley where I worked with Inez Fung studying water and carbon cycle interactions.

Dissertation Title: "Ecoclimate: variations, interactions, and teleconnections."
