Dr Cleiton Breder Eller
Postdoctoral Researcher


My name is Cleiton Breder Eller, I have a BSc in Biology, and a MSc and Phd in Ecology (UNICAMP - Brazil). My research is focused on the ecophysiology of tropical trees, especially tree water relations and growth, and how these processes respond to changes in environmental conditions. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Exeter working in a project led by Prof. Peter Cox, Prof. Stephen Sitch and Dr. Lucy Rowland. On this project, we are developing a modelling scheme based on plant hydraulics theory that improves how the JULES land-surface model represents vegetation responses to drought.

Broad research specialisms

Plant ecophysiology, vegetation modelling, global change, drought, tropical forest, cloud forest


BSc in Biology, MSc and PhD in Ecology (University of Campinas).
