Investigates role of ocean biology in gobal carbon and nutrient cycles.
My research centers on how human activities alter the composition and functioning of ecosystems at regional scales. I combine field work, airborne and satellite mapping, and computer simulation modeling to understand the response of ecosystems to land use and climate change.
Marshall Burke, Assistant Professor, Environmental Earth System Science; Center Fellow, Food Security & the Environment, Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies
My research focuses on understanding how changes in environmental conditions affect a range of social and economic outcomes, and on understanding the causes and consequences of agricultural productivity improvements.
My research strives to improve the science base needed to allow human civilization to develop while protecting our environmental endowment. My group investigates ocean acidification, energy and emissions, climate intervention, modern climate and carbon cycle changes, and climate, carbon, and geochemistry in earth history.
