Jennifer Kowalczyk is interested in how global vegetation will change in a warm, high CO2 world, and how these changes will affect climate. She investigates this using Earth System models. Jennifer's current project is seeking to understand climate-vegetation feedbacks in the Early Eocene, a warm high CO2 paleoclimate 55 million years ago that may be an analogue for our future climate if carbon emissions continue unabated.
