My research assesses how tropical forests respond to global change. I recently completed my PhD which investigated the impacts of the 2015-2016 El Niño on the intact tropical forests of Africa and South America using long-term forest inventory plot data hosted at ForestPlots.net and in association with many collaborators from the AfriTRON and RAINFOR networks.
