My research interests are in the response of tropical forests to global change, including the impacts of climate change, increasing CO2, and forest degradation. I have experience in tropical forest ecology, ecophysiology and ecosystem modelling. My current broad goal is to use plant functional triats to understand physiological responses of tree and forests to environmental change.
