Areas of Interest:

  • Forest Ecology
  • Ecosystem Carbon and Water Cycling
  • Biometeorology

Her work combines principles from biometeorology, plant physiology, and hydrology. Research interests include the biophysical determinants of ecosystem carbon uptake and water use, advancing biometeorological observation approaches, and exploring tradeoffs between tree growth, drought sensitivity, and resistance to insect outbreak. Recently, Novick has investigated how drought affects a range of forest processes; her research is focused on fingerprinting the biophysical mechanisms that determine ecosystem-scale carbon and water cycle fluxes.
