Please summarise your areas of climate-change expertise (in terms of subjects and geographical areas)
Biological extreme events, CO2 effects on vegetation, water use by crops and wild vegetation, energy technology assessment, several aspects of remote sensing of water use, sustainability of energy and materials use, some aspects of evolutionary change of organisms under global change

My B.S. (U. Notre Dame) and Ph. D. (Caltech) were in chemistry. I have a long scientific career, primarily at Los Alamos Nat. Labs and New Mexico State University, eventually moving to biology, particularly plant physiological ecology, with great attention to quantitative studies of plant resource use (light, water, CO2, nitrogen), using computer modelling, lab, and field experiments. My recent foci are biological extreme events, direct vegetation response to CO2, and crop water use.I have done energy technology assessment. I retired early in 2008 to start my own consulting consortium on global change. In this small start-up, I have worked on pollutant dispersion for BP and on optimzing deficit irrigation on major nut crops to survive irrigation shortfalls as ag water supplies are impacted by climate change and M&I diversions. I have experience in research in the US, France, Australia, Germany, and Mexico.
