Postdoctoral research assistant
Southeast Asian biogeography and ecological stoichiometry
I work on the forests of Indonesia. Primarily on recording what species live where. This has involved vegetation surveys in Sulawesi and Sumbawa. I am also interested in the plant chemistry to soil chemistry relationship. I try to understand how chemical elements in plants is linked to species abundance and distribution across landscapes. I have also dabbled in Legumes.
