Anna Michalak

Faculty, Dept. of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institution for Science

Dr. Michalak’s research interests focus on characterizing complexity and quantifying uncertainty in environmental systems with the goal of improving our understanding of these systems and our ability to forecast their variability. Current application areas include atmospheric greenhouse gas emission and sequestration estimation, understanding linkages between climate variability and water quality, and use of remote sensing data for earth system characterization. The common theme of her research is the development and application of statistical and geostatistical data fusion methods for optimizing the use of limited in situ and remote sensing environmental data.
