Curtis Jones is a terrestrial ecosystems modeler with interest in systems approaches to understand and quantify soil-vegetation-atmosphere interactions. His research foci include vegetation productivity and phenological modeling, resiliency, sustainability, efficiency, risk, uncertainty, climate change impacts, mitigation, and adaptation, and environmental impacts. He is experienced in developing, parameterizing, evaluating, and applying physically and statistically based models from fine to global scale to improve model quality and improve quantitative assessment of system behavior and outcomes. Due to the prevalence of data scarcity in the agricultural domain, he is interested in exploring and developing quality data for driving, parameterizing, and evaluating models at stakeholder relevant scale.
