Graduate Student

Research Interests

Annette studies how nutrient limitation and rising CO2affect nitrogen fixation and primary productivity in the tropics. Her work focuses on how geologically-derived nutrients such as phosphorus and molybdenum can limit nitrogen fixation in tropical forest ecosystems now and into the future. Annette is using a combination of experimental field studies, greenhouse studies and modeling to explore the interactions of nutrients, nitrogen-fixation and climate change.
