About Me

I am a conservation biologist with a PhD in Global Change Ecology. Following 10+ years in the Asia-Pacific region, I moved to Canada as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in 2018. Most of my recent research took place in the tropics, primarily Borneo, India and Thailand. I currently conduct hydrological and carbon modeling in the context of land management and climate change.
