Assistant Professor, Food, Agricultural, and Biological Engineering; College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences
Darren Drewry’s research interests focus on understanding the interactions of terrestrial vegetation with climate, and the associated implications for ecological and hydrological resources, biodiversity and human health. His research approach is centered on the development and application of detailed mechanistic models of the coupled atmosphere-vegetation-soil system, incorporating relevant in-situ and remote sensing observations. Darren comes to Ohio State from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where he was a research scientist in JPL’s Earth Science Division. There his work centered on studies of vegetation form, health and function using remote sensing technologies spanning the visible, near-, shortwave- and thermal-infrared spectral regions.
