My research encompasses several themes: Geomorphology, Fire ecology, ecosystem management, wood biomass optimization and bioeconomy. My main research projects involve the use of geomatics and spatial analysis tools to study the effects of biophysical processes on landscape dynamics, including natural disturbances such as fire, but also human disturbances. I work with the Department of Natural Resources on a plethora of projects, like producing digital maps of soil properties across Canada at various resolution. I am also currently collaborating with several other Canadian researchers and Industrial partners on the optimization of supply chains for harvesting biomass under environmental, operational and economic constraints.
