My research program has two primary directions. The first arm of my research program focuses on mapping and modeling of invasive exotic species (IES). Research topics of my IES projects include: (1) mapping IES distributions with medium resolution satellite imagery, high resolution aerial photography, and historical herbarium data; (2) modeling the influence of natural and anthropogenic factors on IES invasion; and (3) examining IES dispersal patterns for management prioritization. The other arm of my research program focuses on large-scale ecosystem dynamics in forests in the eastern United States. Research topics of my forest ecosystem dynamic projects include: (1) forest species composition shift and their impact on biomass and carbon sequestration and (2) adaptation of tree species to climate change.
