Present Research Activities
I am working now with Prof. Martin Lechowicz in McGill University in three topics in forest ecology include:
- Tree death and recovery ten years after the 1998 ice storm
- Impact of quarry dust on Hemlock growth
- Comparative eco-physiology of beech saplings.
I am looking for further co-operation with any Canadian Ecologist or Ecophysiologist to continue my research in forest ecology.
Research Interests and Experience
- Artificial forests
- Population and community ecology of terrestrial and wetland vegetation
- Plant competition and allelopathy
- Experienced in plant quantitative anatomy and eco-physiological analysis of plant, soil, water and air samples (MSC experience)
- Experienced in population biology and vegetation analysis using Multivariate methods (Ph.D. experience)
I am acquiring good experience, through my Postdoctoral fellowship in McGill University, with photosynthetic Infrared Gas Analyzer (IRGA) and Eye-Fish photography and its related software. Moreover, I have a lot of experience with the most common lab. and field instruments.
