Research Interests

Research interests cover the life cycle impacts of alternative paths by which greenhouse gas emissions may be reduced, including via biofuels, changes in global agricultural practices, and changes in soil and ecosystem management. Much of the work addresses the food-energy-environment nexus, taking a 50-year perspective on the environmental impacts of globally accelerating demands for food and energy and how such impacts could be moderated.
