Chair, FRBC / Slocan Mixed Wood Ecology (Ecosystem Science and Management)

I am a forest ecologist whose research focuses on how climate and landscape disturbances interact to influence forest dynamics, landscape connectivity, and the spatial distribution of forest ecosystem services. My research is premised on the idea that by improving our understanding of the ecological processes that drive forest dynamics we will be better able to: predict how the systems will change in the future in response to shifting environmental, climatic and socioeconomic conditions, more accurately evaluate the uncertainty associated with future environmental conditions, and develop more robust forest management plans.
