My MSc project focused on adaptations to climate in populations of lodgepole pine and interior spruce across a range of contrasting environments in western Canada which were assessed as quantitative traits in common garden experiments. This study was realized as part of the AdapTree project (http://adaptree.forestry.ubc.ca/).
Since 2014 research fellow at Thünen Institute, participating in the project FitForClim that aims to provide a foundation for a sustainable supply of high-quality forest reproductive material (i.e. forest tree seeds) to ensure long term forest productivity under changing environmental conditions.
