We focus on how biophysical factors regulate carbon and water dynamics in terrestrial ecosystems. Specifically, we study soil-plant-atmosphere interactions to understand and quantify the response of terrestrial ecosystems to management, extreme events, and global change. We are interested in studying above- and below-ground processes at multiple spatio-temporal scales and vegetation types.

Rodrigo Vargas is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences at the University of Delaware.
