Current Research

  • Modelling the dynamics of tree species changes due to climate change
  • Evaluating ntraspecific variation in tree response
  • Modelling the spread of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)

Research Interests

I am interested in understanding and modelling tree species distributions primarily at a macroecological scale. Of specific interest is to understand intra-specific variation in trees using a variety of techniques to evaluate genetic, ecological and environmental variation that results in differential adaptation across landscapes especially in the era of human induced climatic changes.

Why This Research is Important

Because there in increasing consensus that anthropogenic climate change is going to result in increase in temperatures beyond natural variation, and that, along with other human mediated disturbances is going to impact forest health and ecosystems.
