Liberty Hyde Bailey Professor, School of Integrative Plant Science
Yiqi Luo's research program is focused on predictive understanding of ecosystem ecology and biogeochemistry under the global environmental change via data-model integration. Major issues include (1) how global change alters structure and functions of terrestrial ecosystems, and (2) how terrestrial ecosystems regulate climate change, addressed using experimentation, observation, data synthesis, modeling, data-model fusion, and theoretical analysis.
Among his many honors, Yiqi is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union, the Ecological Society of America, and AAAS. He has also been recognized by Web of Science as a highly cited researcher for 2018-2021.
