University of New South Wales
Anna is interested in large-scale interactions between vegetation, climate and water resources. Her current research focuses on evaluating land surface models for simulating water and carbon exchange during drought. In particular, her work aims to identify and better represent key land surface processes controlling the characteristics of droughts in models at various scales ranging from flux tower sites to regional and global scales.
Previously, Anna has investigated large-scale effects of increasing atmospheric CO2 on vegetation and water resources through an analysis of remotely-sensed vegetation cover and water-balance evapotranspiration observations in Australia and globally.
