Research interests
Kevin walks the ever-so-fine line between community and ecosystem ecology, and is especially interested in the impacts of global change on grassland systems. With the Luo lab, he will be assimilating field data from the Extreme Drought in Grasslands Experiment (EDGE) into a process-based terrestrial ecosystem model (TECO) to improve understanding about the current and future potential for different grassland systems to store carbon.
