Biographical Information

The Jackson lab examines the different ways that people affect the Earth. We do basic and applied research on carbon, water, and nutrient cycling, plant and microbial ecology, and global change. Our goal is to build predictive, scientific frameworks that help guide policy solutions for global warming and other environmental problems. We use the tools of molecular biology, biogeochemistry, and environmental sciences at sites ranging from caves in the southwestern United States to the grasslands and forests of Argentina and Uruguay
