Research Interests

Schwalm’s research focuses on how carbon, water, and plant nutrients cycle through land systems. He examines the natural and global change drivers of terrestrial biogeochemistry  This includes extensive work on drought, its impact on carbon cycling as well as ecosystem response and recovery to drought events. In addition, he performs research toward improving carbon cycle predictability in Earth system models as well as statistical upscaling and machine learning to advance our current and future understanding of land-atmosphere exchange.
