How does global warming affect terrestrial ecosystems - and thus the important functions and services provided for humans by ecosystems? Prof. Charlotte Grossiord has been investigating this question for nearly a decade. After her PhD, Prof. Grossiord worked for three years at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in the USA as a postdoc fellow, where she investigated how forests adapt to the exacerbation of droughts with higher temperatures. In 2018, she was awarded an Ambizione grant from the Swiss National Science Foundation and joined the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest Snow and Landscape Research WS. In March 2020 she started as a tenure track assistant professor at EPFL.
