Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Forestry from the University of Toronto in 2005. From 2005 to 2007 I held a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Smithsonian Institute's Centre for Tropical Forest Science at Harvard University. Prior to joining Laurier, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at Mount Allison University (2007 to 2011).

Studies in my lab seek to understand the mechanistic bases of plant species distributions along environmental gradients. By understanding the morphological and physiological mechanisms by which plants respond to environmental change, we can better predict responses of these same species to future conditions. We focus on forest ecosystems including tropical, temperate and boreal forests as well as low arctic tundra.
