My background is in tropical forest ecology. My academic research focused on African and Neo-tropical forest assessments of carbon dynamics and biodiversity. This work included organizing and performing extensive forest monitoring campaigns in the Congo Basin, French Guyana and Panama. I mainly worked on tropical forest community ecology, linking plant traits to carbon storage, and investigating forest level seasonality in leaf development (phenology) through the interplay of diverse tree species’ responses to climate.
Through my consulting work in BlueGreen Labs, I am able to broaden my research topics to a variety of interests, including tropical agriculture, agroforestry, food security and the connection with socioeconomic, demographic and gender-based inequity.
