Andrew Felton

I am a midwestern guy born and raised in Minnesota. While an undergrad at the University of Minnesota, I spent much of my time working within projects concerning global change phenomena in grasslands, as well as a semester in lowland Nepal. For my dissertation, I will be focusing on how different intensities and durations of climate extremes interact to affect the physiological, community and ecosystem processes within the North American tallgrass prairie. Specifically, I am interested in how intensity and duration of extremes interact to leave prolonged legacy effects on ecosystem function in subsequent years following the extreme event.
