My research addresses the impacts of seasonality and disturbance on biogeochemical processes. I ask questions at the ecosystem scale, with emphasis in two directions: (1) ecosystem biogeochemical response to global change, such as the feedbacks between climate change, carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) cycles and vegetation communities, and (2) microbial community structure and function, with the purpose of understanding the relationship between soil microbial community and ecosystem processes.
