I work at the interface of ecosystem science, land use and climate change, with my ongoing research and capacity-building effort focused on tropical deforestation and forest degradation, functional diversity of forest ecosystems, animal-habitat interactions, spatial ecology of savannas, invasive species and climate change, and the effects of land use on carbon, nutrient and water cycles. I develop new scientific approaches and technologies for investigation and conservation assessments of large ecoregions, including their carbon emissions, three-dimensional habitat, and biological diversity.
Currently limited to graduate and undergraduate thesis and research advising.
