Education:

  • PhD, Geography, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, 1983
  • MA, Geography, University of Miami, 1977
  • BS (cum laude), Geography and Mathematics, University of Miami, Florida, 1974

Fields of interest:

The foci of my research are (1) climate variability, both spatial and over time, including natural fluctuation and trends associated with global climate change, and looking at both past changes and projections of future changes; and (2) interaction between the atmosphere and the land surface, including effects of land cover change on exchanges of water, carbon, and energy over terrestrial ecosystems, effects of invasive plants on ecosystem function, and hydrological processes in tropical montane cloud forests.
