Curriculum Vitae


Zelalem’s primary area of interest is terrestrial ecosystem modeling. His focus is on modeling soil-plant-atmosphere interactions to understand how the changing climate is impacting land-atmosphere carbon exchange. As part of the Next Generation Ecosystem Experiment-Arctic, his current project includes examining the underlying ecosystem processes that control changes in Arctic plant functional types and associated feedbacks under recent and future climates.
