Trevor F. Keenan is an Associate Professor at the Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, UC Berkeley, and a Scientist in the Climate and Ecosystem Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Over the past two decades, his work has focused on ecosystem carbon sequestration and long-term ecosystem dynamics, as well as related feedbacks to the atmosphere through water use and energy flows. He has a broad interdisciplinary background with formal training in mathematics, ecology and earth system science.
Prof. Keenan's interdisciplinary group at UC Berkeley combines large ecological data sets (e.g., eddy-covariance, remote sensing), mathematical modeling, and machine learning/data assimilation/mining tools, with results from in-situ field studies and experiments, to gain a mechanistic understanding of ecosystem function. The group uses methods from diverse disciplines, including ecophysiology and biogeochemistry, micrometeorology, atmospheric science, mathematics, statistics and high-performance computing.
