I am a broadly trained ecologist interested in understanding how the function and structure of the forest ecosystem respond to global change at regional to global scales. I will be joining the Department of Ecosystem Science and Management at Penn State University in Oct 2022. I am looking for a postdoc and graduate students, please contact me if you are interested.
I take a data-model synthesis approach that integrates satellite and airborne remote sensing, monitoring networks, and forest inventory with Bayesian hierarchical models to answer my research questions. Currently, I am working as a postdoc with Dr. Jim Clark and Dr. Jennifer Swenson. To date, my postdoc project has
The other ongoing projects include:
For my doctoral research, I worked with Drs. Conghe Song, Jim Clark, Erika Wise, Diego Riveros-Iregui, and Allen Hurlbert to understand how vegetation phenology responds to climate change, extreme weather events, and urbanization.
