Terrestrial Biogeochemistry Group
The Terrestrial Biogeochemistry Group investigates how plants and soils regulate the movement of carbon, nutrients, and water in terrestrial ecosystems under a variety of human perturbations. The group is located at University of Massachusetts Lowell in the Department of Environmental, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences and is lead by Dr. Joy Winbourne.
We are recruiting! If you are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Earth System Sciences studying impacts of urbanization on forest ecosystem processes, please contact Dr. Joy Winbourne by email with a copy of your CV and a description of your research interests to start a conversation.
