Moorcroft Lab Fall 2014
Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology
Ecological dynamics of terrestrial plant communities and ecosystems; biosphere-atmosphere interactions; mechanistic models of animal movement.
Research: Francesca is a behavioral and conservation ecologist with a focus on animal movement and terrestrial mammalogy. Dr. Cagnacci will pursue the research objectives in the context of the Hrdy Fellowship in conservation biology in close collaboration with the Moorcroft Lab. In particular, she will investigate the effects of climate and global change on animal spatial distribution, by modelling individual movement and population space use patterns over heterogeneous landscapes exposed to climatic and human-induced changes.
Research: Ashehad is a vegetation modeler interested in understanding and improving the representation of carbon, water and nutrient cycling in earth system models. He confronts model simulations with field and other observations, and uses various techniques to achieve this e.g. data-fusion methods, model calibration & assimilation, and empirical approaches.
