Professor Santiago’s primary research interests are in the environmental physiology of plants, with emphasis on understanding how photosynthesis is regulated by plant hydraulic processes. He also has an active interest in determining the role of plant water use in the hydraulic cycles of forested watersheds. Professor Santiago’s field research has been conducted in montane watershed forest in Hawaii, in lowland tropical forest in Panama, and in the arid, sub-tropical inland valleys of southern California. He employs a variety of techniques including plant physiological measurements, stable isotopes, modeling, environmental sensors, statistical approaches, and phylogenetic analysis. Professor Santiago’s academic background includes a Batchelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley, a Masters of Science from the University of Hawaii and a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Florida. In 2006, he joined the Botany and Plant Sciences faculty at the University of California, Riverside and in 2012 he was appointed as a Research Associate with the Smithsonian Institution.
