My research is focused on understanding the causes and consequences of disturbance and extreme events in tropical forest landscapes. I am particularly interested in how landscape factors generate heterogeneity in forest vulnerability to disturbance and climate variability, and in processes of forest regeneration in tropical landscapes. I use a variety of tools to address these questions, including remote sensing and GIS, Bayesian statistical modeling, forest plots, functional traits, and socio-economic surveys.
Beginning in January 2019, I will be an assistant professor of Geography at the University of British Columbia. If you are interested in joining my lab, please click here.
