Trevor F. Keenan is a Scientist in the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and an Assistant Professor at the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, UC Berkeley. Prof. Keenan’s interests are centered on understanding the impacts of climate variability and long-term change on terrestrial ecosystem function and land surface dynamics, as well as related feedbacks to the atmosphere through ecosystem carbon cycling and water use. His work combines large ecological data sets (e.g., eddy-covariance, remote sensing), models of ecosystem state and function, and data assimilation/mining tools, with results from in-situ field studies and experiments, to gain a mechanistic understanding of key physical and biological processes. Prof. Keenan uses methods from diverse disciplines, including ecophysiology and biogeochemistry, micrometeorology, atmospheric science, mathematics, statistics and high-performance computing.
