Yiqi Luo is Professor at Northern Arizona University. His research is primarily focused on (1) how global change alters the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems, and (2) how terrestrial ecosystems regulate climate change. To address these issues, Dr. Luo’s laboratory has conducted global change experiments, data synthesis, data-model integration, model development, and theoretical analysis. Recently, he has developed a unified framework for studying land carbon cycle. He has published two books, 30 book chapters, and nearly 500 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He was a Highly Cited Researcher recognized by the Web of Science Group, Clarivate Analytics in 2018-2020.
He was elected fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) in 2013, American Geophysical Union (AGU) in 2016, and Ecological Society of America (ESA) in 2018.
Research areas: ecosystem ecology, biogeochemistry, global carbon cycle, global change ecology, computational and theoretical ecology, and ecological modeling
