Research Interests


Research Statement

My research is aimed at understanding how climate produces spatial pattern and temporal variability in ecosystems, and thus influences their basic functioning. I am particularly interested in those ecosystem processes that can in turn influence climate on a variety of time scales. Most of my work has focused on biogeochemical cycles in the ocean, but I am also working at the interface between thermal physiology and climate to understand patterns of terrestrial diversity and its response to climate change. I got a PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Science at Princeton University and, after three years as a post-doctoral fellow in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington, I joined the faculty as an assistant professor at UCLA, where I teach courses on ocean biogeochemistry and climate.
