Jack works on soil-derived greenhouse gas (GHG) budgets in carbon rich ecosystems, especially in the tropics and the Arctic. Currently he is working to understand diurnal and seasonal controls on methane emissions in Amazonian floodplain forests at Mamiraua Reserve, Brazil. Jack also works on projects developing low-cost instrumentation techniques for distributed GHG flux measurements.
Previously, Jack studied mechanical engineering and geophysics at Berkeley (‘21) and worked for Baptiste Dafflon at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab developing scalable temperature sensors for hydrology and permafrost monitoring. He began his PhD in Earth System Science in Fall 2021.
