My general interests broadly lie in applied ecology and conservation. However, I am particularly interested in the environmental and biological mechanisms driving patterns of regeneration, mortality and growth of forests at multiple spatial and temporal scales.
My research focuses on the interaction between competition and the response to climate along large ecological gradients. I am also contributing to study the growth and morphological adaptations of various co-existing shade tolerant species over gradients of light and tree density in temperate deciduous forests.
My research combines extensive field studies with a variety of quantitative techniques to try to achieve the best inference from the ecological data we collect.
