A. Carla Staver
Prize Postdoctoral Fellow
| My work focuses on the dynamics and
distribution of biomes, especially at the intersection of savanna and
use a combination of empirical and modelling approaches to understand
how local interactions of trees with their resource and disturbance
environment scale up to predict landscape- and continental-scale
patterns in tree cover and the distributions of biomes.
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in Global Climate change in the E3B department at Columbia University.
I will be starting as an Assistant Professor in the EEB department at Yale University in July 2014. Please visit the Lab Group page for information on opportunities.
