Matthew Amato

University of California-Riverside

Dr. Matthew Amato earned his PhD and MS degrees in Environmental Science from Rutgers University before joining the Department of Environmental Sciences at University of California, Riverside as a postdoctoral researcher. Dr. Amato specializes in applying statistical and numerical modeling techniques to study ecohydrological processes in Earth’s critical zone. His current research integrates data from soil-climate networks, databases and remote sensing products to explore how plants and climate jointly influence soil structure and its impact on the hydrological cycle. The overarching goal of his research is to refine the physical and spatial representation of soil-plant-climate interactions in land surface models, ultimately to improve forecasts of global environmental change.
