Prof. Gil Bohrer, Ph.D.

Associate Professor for Ecological Engineering
Department of Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering,
The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA

Research interests:

  • Develops physical and empirical models of the interactions between individual biological organisms and atmospheric and hydrological processes.
  • Develops new approaches to parameterization of the effects of small-scale heterogeneity on surface fluxes, on water movement from the soil through plants to the air, and on advection and dispersion of VOCs and particulate matter·
  • Uses a range of models from high-power parallel large eddy simulations to simple empirical models
  • Runs meteorological and eddy-flux observations in forests and wetlands to provide the needed information to force, parameterize and evaluate models of green-house gas budgets of ecosystems and the effects of small-scale heterogeneity and intermediate disturbance on these fluxes

Academic Education:

2007-2008: Harvard University Center for the Environment, Postdoc
2007: Duke University, Ph.D., Civil & Environmental Engineering
2001: Ben Gurion University, Israel, M.Sc., Ecology
1998: Ben Gurion University, Israel, B. Sc., Life Sciences
