I am a forest ecologist interested in how to better manage our forests in a future characterized by global changes. My work aims at studying the dynamics of forest ecosystems to anticipate the potential impacts of climate, disturbance and socio-economic changes. I use simulation models of forest dynamics to explore interactions of trees with their changing environment and forest management strategies to enhance long-term resistance and resilience at multiple scales - from stand to landscape.

Research interests

  • Forest dynamic modelling
  • Impacts of climate change and disturbances on forest ecosystems
  • Forest management, silviculture and ecosystem services provision from temperate forests
