Curriculum Vitae 

Research interests

Dr. Huntzinger’s research interests focus on improving the understanding of complex environmental systems and our ability to forecast their future variability. Her current research interests are in the integration and comparison of environmental remote sensing products, model estimates, and in situ data to advance the understanding of biospheric contributions, both spatially and temporally, to land-atmosphere carbon exchange. Dr. Huntzinger also has research focused on the use of industrial waste by-products to sequester industry generated CO2 emissions.

Research focus areas

Climate change, terrestrial carbon cycling, land-atmosphere carbon interactions, carbon capture and storage.
