I am a research scientist in the Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems group at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. I’m interested in characterizing vegetation through the measurement of plant functional traits and trait diversity to study the impact of global change on plant health as well as ecosystem productivity and stability. To measure, monitor and predict vegetation change, my main focus lies on combining imaging spectroscopy and laser scanning measurements at different scales (terrestrial, airborne, spaceborne measurements), and integrating it with physically based models (e.g. ED2 for vegetation dynamics, DART for radiative transfer).
