Exploring the global forest system to predict and address climate change
Tom Crowther is an ecologist and recently joined ETH Zurich as assistant professor. He leads the Crowther Lab, which aims to generate a mechanistic understanding of the ecological processes that drive the carbon cycle and climate system at a global scale. An ecologically-informed understanding of Earth system dynamics is necessary to understand and address global climate change. Tom also works with international NGOs, conservation organisations and various consortia that to combat global diversity loss, poverty and climate change.
