Cynthia Wright is a Postdoctoral fellow through ForestGEO and NGEE-Tropics. Her work aims to determine plant water sourcing depths using stable isotopes of water as natural tracers to support efforts modeling forest response to climate change. In particular, she is interested in better understanding how tree species and functional types may employ divergent water acquisition strategies under extended drought conditions. To do this, she leads, participates, and helps facilitate field campaigns and sensor deployments for the characterization of tree water uptake depth, tree water use patterns, and soil water dynamics at key tropical forest sites in Panama and the Brazilian Amazon. Cynthia received her PhD in Ecosystem Science and Management from Texas A&M University in 2020.
