Research Interests

My broad scale research interests are in the area of terrestrial ecosystem ecology, particularly related to abiotic and biotic controls on ecosystem processes. Our field sites cover a range of natural and human modified ecosystems in Patagonia, Argentina where we are researching controls on litter decomposition, biogeochemical cycles, natural abundance of stable isotopes, and the potential impacts of global change in a range of grassland and forest ecosystems.
