Current Research

  • Modelling the dynamics of tree species response to various disturbances
  • Evaluating intraspecific variation in tree response by integrating demography and genetics

Research Interests

I am interested in understanding tree species demographic response at a macroecological scale and using ensemble and simulation models to predict future suitable habitats and colonization likelihoods. My current focus is to understand within-species variation by evaluating genetic, ecological and environmental differences among populations under various disturbance regimes using multiple modelling techniques.

Why This Research is Important

Forest health is being increasing affected by both natural and anthropogenic impacts resulting in changing forest landscapes. A comprehensive approach is needed to tackle forest management and conservation issues - for example, in addressing issues like assisted colonization of important tree species. My research focuses on an integrated, multi-stage modelling approach to address the challenge of forest health maintenance in the United States.
