Research Interests

I am a Lecturer in Forest Ecology at the School of Forestry at the University of Canterbury. My interests lie in plant and forest ecology, and the resilience of these ecosystems to a changing environment. More specifically, my research has included questions on forest dynamics, plant eco-physiology, and fire ecology.
