INCyTE Steering Committee
Cory Cleveland - University of Montana
Cory is an ecosystem ecologist interested in how terrestrial ecosystems function. Much of the work in his lab focuses on carbon-nutrient interactions and how nutrients constrain carbon fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems. For more about my his work or contact information, please visit his website.
Dr. Emma Hauser - University of Montana
Emma is an ecosystem ecologist whose work combines empirical and modeling studies to investigate carbon and nutrient cycling in terrestrial ecosystems.
Sasha Reed - U.S. Geological Survey
Sasha a research ecologist focused on understanding how our nation's ecosystems work and what factors affect the services they provide. The study sites and methods Sasha uses are diverse, and with each of her projects she strives to provide scientific information that helps our nation address challenges, solve problems, and maximize opportunities. For more information about Sasha and her work, please visit her website.
Fiona Soper - McGill University
Fiona is an ecosystem ecologist, specializing in plant ecophysiology and biogeochemistry. Her research explores how plant traits influence ecosystem processes such as soil nutrient cycling, gas emissions, productivity and land cover change across a range of ecosystems from deserts to rainforests. For more information about her work, please visit her website.
Will Wieder - NCAR
With training as an experimental soil biogeochemist, Will is interested in studying global biogeochemical cycles by evaluating and improving Earth System models by incorporating ecological theory and observations. For more information about my work, please visit his website.
Yingping Wang - CSIRO (Australia)
Yingping completed his PhD in plant ecophysiology from University of Edinburgh in 1988, and moved to CSIRO, Australian in 1990. He is a chief research scientist in CSIRO since 2015 and one of the two key scientists responsible for developing the Australian community land surface model (CABLE) that has over 100 registered users from 51 institutions in 13 countries. His major achievements include the development of the Australian community land model (CABLE), two-leaf canopy scheme, the unified theory of global nitrogen fixation, and the first global model of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycles.

Dr. Richard Phillips - University of Indiana
Rich is a professor in the department of biology at the University of Indiana. Dr. Phillips' lab investigates how plants and soil microbes mediate energy flow and nutrient dynamics in forests.. For more information about Rich's work, please visit the Phillips Lab.
