Tim Griffis is a professor in the department of Soil, Water and Climate. He received his PhD at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. He was a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He has expertise in biometeorology, stable isotope biogeochemistry, and land surface modeling. For the past 15 years he has been involved with micrometeorological field measurements in forests and agricultural ecosystems as part of Fluxnet Canada and AmeriFlux. He has helped pioneer laser-based flux ratio and eddy covariance isotope applications involving carbon dioxide and water vapor. His recent work has focused on tall tower/regional scale flux measurements of water vapor, carbon dioxide, and nitrous oxide using a variety of boundary-layer budget techniques. He has served as PI and co-PI on recent USDA, DOE, NOAA, and NSF grants. He has served as associate editor for the Journal of Geophysical Research – Biogeosciences and Agricultural and Forest Meteorology.
