Research Interests

I am interested in the effects of climate change on forest health – particularly, how forest ecosystems are affected by abiotic stresses such as heat and drought. My Master’s research focused on physiological responses of conifer seedlings from varying provenances to drought stress, and also possibilities for drought acclimation. More broadly, my research interests include disturbance, succession, forest health, and forest ecology. I am also interested in how we interact with the land, and the inclusion of traditional ecological knowledge.
