Benjamin Bond-Lamberty

Senior Research Scientist, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Integrating large scale soil respiration and other datasets for understanding global carbon-cycle changes

How can we leverage observations to best constrain and understand the carbon cycle in a changing global environment? This talk will focus on opportunities to shed light on the long tail of “dark data” and novel opportunities to use database integration to probe and test our understanding of terrestrial ecosystems.

Ben Bond-Lamberty is a Senior Research Scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, specializing in terrestrial ecology and carbon-cycle science. His research involves both modeling and field/lab experiments, and focuses on climate change, soil carbon cycling, and forest disturbance and ecology. He has collaborated with and mentored a wide range of interns, technicians, students, and postdoctoral scientists over the last 15 years, published over 125 peer-reviewed journal articles, and is a AAAS Fellow. He has strong interests and expertise in open data, scientific reproducibility, and the R statistical computing language. He has delivered invited talks at department seminars across the U.S. and internationally as well as at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, the Ecological Society of America annual meeting, the AsiaFlux 20th anniversary workshop, and the Canadian Carbon Program and Ameriflux annual meetings.
