RESEARCH

Research Interests

Soil Geography. My research is focused on measuring, modeling and explaining the spatial variability of soil properties and processes at hillslope to regional scales. Currently that research is focused on short- and long-term greenhouse gas flux dynamics (CO2, CH4 and N2O) for agricultural landscapes. In pursuing this research, I make extensive use of digital terrain modeling, optical remote sensing, spatial statistics, and proximal soil sensing techniques.
