Current Research

Dr. Biro is an ecosystem ecologist and biogeochemist working with Dr. Winslow Hansen at the Cary Institute. Her research in the Forest Futures Lab focuses on using simulation modeling to understand how top-down and bottom-up ecosystem drivers, ranging from climate, fire, species composition, and soil nutrients, affect the future of boreal forests under climate warming.

Previous Research

Before joining the Cary Institute, Dr. Biro received her PhD in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology from Yale University where she worked on nutrient acquisition and plant-microbe interactions in African savannas. Her research focused on understanding how soil nutrients, soil microbes, fire, and nitrogen fixation affect savanna tree growth and ecosystem nutrient pools.
