Research interests: My research interests surround the environ- mental conditions that influence plant growth and how plants, in return, can influence those environmental conditions.  My pre- vious work has focused on applying plant nutrient acquisition via fine root foraging strategies and mycorrhizal fungi associations to ecosystem-level cycling of carbon and nitrogen.  CV, website

Research interests: Interactions among plants, their associated organisms, and abiotic processes, and how these affect nitrogen cycling in terrestrial ecosystems.  One focus of my research is the nitrogen paradox in temperate vs. tropical forests: I am investigating several possible explanations of the paradox, including the vertical nitrostat model and biological fixation strategies.  CV
