Support Staff and Students
Research is focused on water use, greenhouse gas emission, and energy exchange in managed and unmanaged ecosystem, with an emphasis on plant-environment interactions, and plant-water relations. Research has been conducted in wheat, cotton, sorghum, soybean, rice, vineyards, coastal marshes, grasslands, savannas, and forests. I am the PI for FLUXNET sites in a grassland and a forest on the Edwards Plateau in central Texas, part of a global network of eddy flux tower installations for monitoring carbon, water, and energy exchange between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. I currently teach one undergraduate course (SCSC 309 – Water in Soil and Plants), and team-teach a second undergraduate course (SCSC 307 – Crop Biology and Physiology).
