Research Interests

Trees provide important ecosystem services to us in both natural and urban landscapes. My research explores how trees adapt to the changing environment and how we can better manage them. I work closely with governments, institutions, and communities to ensure a translatable output of my research. As an interdisciplinary bioscientist, I also expand my interests to general ecological and evolutionary questions.
