I am working on a Centre for Forest Protection (CFP) project in which we aim to assess the vulnerability of non-native candidate tree species to native organisms and make recommendations for suitability in planting schemes in the UK. This assessment is to be made using a phylogenetically informed approach comparing non-native species to native host species for pests and diseases.
Before this I worked on forest remote sensing where I used aerial and terrestrial laser scanning data to monitor the structure and growth of forest stands in sustainable silvicultural systems.
