Research interests

How do environmental conditions affect plants in managed and natural ecosystems? What are the risks of damage to leaves, crops and trees from lack of rainfall and wide temperature fluctuations in the summer, and from severe winter conditions, with low temperatures, lack of snow and high irradiance? How will the risks of damage change under future climates? What can we do in managed ecosystems to reduce the potential for damage and obtaine yield reliably?

I develop and apply eco-hydrological models - process-based, quantitative description of vegetation response to random, potentially damaging, weather conditions - to quantify such risks and the potential effects of management strategies - from species and variety selection, to diversification in space and time (species mixtures and rotations).
