Alexandra Konings is a hydrologist interested in how ecosystems and the carbon cycle respond to variations in water availability at large scales. Research questions in the Konings lab span a range of ecosystem properties, but many of them surround the role of vegetation water content in predicting plant health and its associated fluxes and growth. She holds SB and PhD degrees from MIT, and a M.S. from Duke University. She joined the Department of Earth System Science as an assistant professor in 2016.
