Research Summary

My research focuses on understanding how ecosystems interact with the atmosphere. In other words, investigating how the "breathing of ecosystems" – the exchange of gases and heat between ecosystems and the air – is influenced by weather and climate.

Wood’s research focuses on ecosystem science and the exchanges of gases and heat between the biosphere and atmosphere. There is specific emphasis on better understanding the factors controlling fluxes of carbon, water, and nitrogen between natural or managed systems and the atmosphere.
