PhD student at the University of British Columbia Tree-Ring Lab and Landscape Ecology Lab in the Faculty of Forestry, Department of Conservation and Sciences. I'm interested in global change impacts on forest structure and function and am currently investigating landscape change and wildfire vulnerability in southeastern BC.
Context In fire-excluded forests across western North America, recent intense wildfire seasons starkly contrast with fire regimes of the past. The last 100 years mark a transition between pre-colonial and modern era fire regimes, providing crucial context for understanding future wildfire behavior. Objectives Using the greatest time depth of digiti...
In the 2017 and 2018, 2.55 million hectares burned across British Columbia, Canada, including unanticipated large and high-severity fires in many dry forests. To transform forest and fire management to achieve resilience to future megafires requires improved understanding historical fire frequency, severity, and spatial patterns. Our dendroecologic...
Invasive insects facilitate secondary invasive species by altering forest structure and function. Specifically, invasive insect herbivores may promote the establishment and growth of invasive plants by creating canopy gaps. Such secondary invasions may be influenced by ecological integrity — the degree to which ecosystem composition, structure, and...
