Kelly Caylor

Director of ERI, Professor of Ecohydrology

Dr. Caylor's research addresses the coupled feedbacks between terrestrial vegetation and surface hydrological dynamics, with a focus on the causes and consequences of spatial patterns in plants and their accompanying root systems within water-limited landscapes. The research approach integrates theoretical development, field observations, and simulation modeling to develop new insight into the complex ecohydrological controls on water balance in water-limited landscapes. Dr. Caylor examines these topics at a number of spatial and temporal scales; from patch-level experimental and observational work to regional-scale investigations that rely heavily on numerical modeling and the application of remote sensing technologies.

Dr. Caylor is the Director of the Earth Research Institute and a Professor of Ecohydrology with in the Departments of Geography and the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management.
