I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in Tropical forest ecosystems and climate at the Oxford Ecosystems Lab led by Yadvinder Malhi at the Environmental Change Institute in the School of Geography and the Environment. My research is focused on tropical forest interactions with climate, El Niño, tropical forest carbon cycling, tropical tree mortality, and wind disturbance in the Amazon basin. I am currently funded by The Nature Conservancy and The Oxford Martin School to research the impact of extreme weather events upon forests of the Amazonian biosphere.
