Bruno Gimenez is a postdoctoral fellow with ForestGEO and NGEE-Tropics studying the ecophysiology of tropical forests. His research has focused on forest dynamics associated with water and carbon cycles. Bruno is leading in situ canopy-level measurements using a 26 m telescopic boom lift for the first time in the Amazon forest. Also, Bruno oversees experiments that link different time scales as well as investigations that combine long-term forest inventory plots, environmental variables provided by flux towers, and physiological experiments, such as leaf gas exchange, leaf water potential, and sap flow. Bruno is based in Manaus, Brazil, and is responsible for part of the sensor network and logistics of the NGEE-Tropics project at this site.
