I am an ecologist and biogeochemist who focuses on plant ecophysiology and the terrestrial carbon cycle. I am particularly interested in understanding the effects of environmental change (e.g., climate change, urbanization, and land cover change) on the drivers and plant-mediated controls of terrestrial carbon cycling, and nitrogen dynamics as a limiting nutrient, across a continuum of human-disturbed ecosystems. My research draws from multiple disciplines and combines field observations, ecosystem experiments, and laboratory analyses with GIS, remote sensing, and modeling. I currently have projects in forested and human dominated landscapes throughout the mid-Atlantic and Northeastern U.S. For my latest CV, click here.


I welcome the involvement of students, post-docs, and visiting scientists in the lab. Please contact me at Andrew.Reinmann@asrc.cuny.edu if you are interested.
