I am interested in the structure of forests and trees over large geographic areas, and how they are changing over time, especially in tropical systems. My students and I combine environmental remote sensing with field studies, quantitative methods, and modeling to address questions in both basic and applied science from ecological and evolutionary perspectives. We work on problems related to the role of tropical forests in the global carbon cycle, the importance of natural and anthropogenic disturbance in mediating interactions between tropical forests and the atmosphere, and the importance of genetic variation and phenotypic plasticity to canopy chemistry.
