My research focuses on plant responses to environmental change and photosynthetic gas exchange theory and methodology. I use a combination of laboratory experiments, modelling, and field work to study and predict the interactive effects of climate change and seasonality on boreal conifer growth and photosynthesis. The modelling is being done in collaboration with Dr. Bill Bauerle at Colorado State University, while the field work is a collaborative effort with Way lab member Eric Dusenge and Jeff Warren from Oak Ridge National Lab at the SPRUCE field site in Minnesota.
I am currently a Visiting Fulbright PhD Researcher at the University of New Mexico working with Dr. David T. Hanson on photosynthetic gas exchange theory and method development.
