Mon programme de recherche vise à obtenir des aperçus aux processus sous-jacents à l’origine et à l’entretien de la diversité biologique concentrant sur l’écologie, l’évolution et la génomique des arbres forestiers et la compréhension des causes et conséquences de la déforestation et la fragmentation des forêts. La compréhension de ces processus fournit une base essentielle pour le développement de bonnes stratégies de conservation et d’aménagement pour les régions forestiers. Les projets de recherche courants dans mon laboratoire incluent les études moléculaires et phylogéniques, la caractérisation des marqueurs moléculaire pour la cartographie génomique et les études du flux génique dans une variété d’organismes incluant les arbres forestiers tempérés et tropicaux.
