Biography

Dr. Andrew Moyes currently oversees greenhouse gas observations for the Carbon Project of the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program, supported by the U.S. Department of Energy.  He is broadly interested in the interactions between plants, soils and their environment, and between the biosphere and the atmosphere.  Before joining LBNL, Dr. Moyes worked as a postdoctoral researcher at UC Berkeley studying how drought, vegetation, and land management impact greenhouse gas fluxes of California grassland soils.  He also conducted postdoctoral studies at UC Merced on the effects of climate warming on trees at high elevation, and investigating whether bacteria harbored within pine needles are an important source of forest nitrogen.  Dr. Moyes focused his PhD research at the University of Utah on understanding the relative contributions of plant and soil carbon sources to soil respiration, using novel stable isotope techniques.  He has also studied fire and restoration ecology of California annual grasslands and photoprotective pigments in leaves.
