Research areas: Environmental Change

Professor Lee's research explores the past, current, and the future of the Amazonian climate and ecosystem. She studies how Amazonian forests are influenced by climate forcings from outside (increasing greenhouse gases for example) and how forests modulate the climate in the Amazon basin, and is also interested in the origin and maintenance of the Atlantic forests.
