Alison PostPostdoctoral Scientist
Alison is an ecosystem ecologist interested in how grasslands respond to climate change. She’s previously used large-scale field experiments to test how grasslands respond to altered precipitation patterns. Currently, she uses repeat digital photography (PhenoCam) and modeling to understand how climate influences the timing of seasonal transitions across diverse grassland ecosystems.
