Christopher Kibler is a postdoctoral scholar from Maine. He received his bachelor's degree in geography and international affairs from George Washington University in 2014. He received his master's degree in geography from UCSB in 2019 and his Ph.D. in geography from UCSB in 2023. Prior to attending graduate school, he worked for the city government in Washington, DC, where he developed and enforced water pollution regulations.
My research examines the linkages between water, energy, and carbon fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems. My work also quantifies the impacts of disturbance events, such as fires and droughts, on ecosystem structure and function. I utilize a variety of techniques, including remote sensing, eddy covariance, and ecological modeling.
