Dr. Simonin’s research focuses on increasing our understanding of plant physiological controls over carbon, water, and nutrient transport between soils, plants, and the atmosphere. These functions are of critical importance for understanding how natural ecosystems and human reconfigured ecosystems respond to a changing climate.  His current research is focused on relating variation in a plant structure (anatomy) to physiological function in both fields and laboratory settings including the use of biophysical models to predict plant physiological responses to changes in the environment.
