I am interested in refining novel silvicultural practices designed to guide the establishment and management of forests under global change. I use a combination of field measurements, remote-sensing data and modelling. Much of my work to date has examined long-term experiments to address current questions about how to achieve resilience of forest stands to extreme events, and balance trade-offs such as for timber production, biodiversity and other ecosystem attributes and services.
