Forest and Conservation Sciences

I am a Ph.D. candidate in John Richardson's lab at UBC. My work focuses on the effects of river diking and channelization on cottonwood forest structure and dynamics in the semi-arid Okanagan-Similkameen region of British Columbia. My primary goals are to understand whether and how these longitudinal flood control measures have influenced the decline of cottonwood forests, and evaluate solutions for conservation and restoration. A lot of my work is community-based and collaborative with NGOs, government, and First Nations organizations. I'm committed to exploring solutions that make sense and work for both people and the environment.
