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.

Research focus areas

Climate change, terrestrial carbon cycling, water resources and water quality, sustainability, and green engineering.
