My Research

Carbon Cycle | Fire | Emissions | Climate


Hi, and thanks for visiting my site. My aim here is to document and explain my research to a wide audience.

I have a broad interest in the global carbon cycle and I am an expert on the role of wildfires in this cycle. My research focuses on the global and regional trends in wildfire and deforestation fire seen in satellite observations and models, the relation of these trends to climate change, and their long-term implications for carbon storage on land and for climate change.

I am a proud contributor to the Global Carbon Project (GCP). Each year, the GCP evaluates the global carbon budget by accounting for emissions of CO2 from fossil sources, deforestation and other land use changes, the uptake of CO2 by the land and oceans, and the CO2 that remains in the atmosphere. Under the umbrella of the GCP, I am increasingly involved in the study of CO2 emissions from fossil sources.
