NC CASC welcomes Dr. Jilmarie Stephens
Dr. Jilmarie Stephens is a bio-micro-meteorologist studying plant-atmosphere interactions in a changing climate, from surface layer turbulence to ecosystem scale climate, carbon, and water fluxes. Her doctoral work focused on long term trends in Boreal forest ecosystems using both in-situ flux tower measurements and ecophysiological modeling techniques. At CIRES/NC CASC, her research focuses on understanding changing wildfire regimes in the American West using observations and numerical modeling approaches. She has also served as a CIRES RECCS community college student mentor. Jilmarie received her B.S. and M.S. in Atmospheric Science at UC Davis and her Ph.D. in Soil Science from the University of British Columbia.
