Key Research Interests and Expertise

Matt is an expert on the global carbon cycle and in particular the role of landscape fires and fossil fuel combustion in this cycle. His research focuses on the global and regional trends in wildfire and deforestation fire activity seen in satellite observations and models and the implications of these trends for carbon storage on land.

Matt contributes to the Global Carbon Project (GCP). Each year, the GCP evaluates the global carbon budget by accounting for emissions of CO2 from fossil sources, deforestation and other land use changes, the uptake of CO2 by the land and oceans, and the CO2 that remains in the atmosphere.
