Dr. Houlton's research centers on biogeochemical cycles of ecosystems and the Earth. He uses a range of natural isotopic techniques, models, and experimental approaches in his research. Through his research, Dr. Houlton hopes to advance our understanding of ecosystem responses to global environmental change, including climate change, rising levels of carbon dioxide, and nutrient enrichments of the biosphere. Dr. Houlton has won several awards for his research, most recently the Gene E. Likens award in recognition of the most outstanding paper by a junior scientist published in the biogeosciences.
