A. Carla Staver

Prize Postdoctoral Fellow

Columbia University
My work focuses on the dynamics and distribution of biomes, especially at the intersection of savanna and forest. I 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.
