Research Interests


Research Description

My research is focused at the intersection of community ecology, disturbance ecology, forest management, and conservation. I investigate the community-level effects of forest disturbances, both natural and anthropogenic, and develop management strategies that balance conservation goals with human needs. I am especially driven to enhance linkages between ecological theory and forest management, and to evaluate and revise outdated methodological paradigms that do not incorporate modern ecological insights.
