Biography

Lucy Hutyra

I received my Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2007 and am currently a Professor in the Department of Earth & Environment at Boston University. My current research interests center on characterization of the urban carbon cycle, including quantifying the affects of urbanization on vegetation structure and productivity, developing urban greenhouse gas monitoring systems, and refining fossil fuel emissions estimates. My group’s work is currently focused on the northeastern United States, with some continuing work in tropical rain forests.
