I am extremely happy to announce that I have successfully defended my Ph.D on July 20, 2017 at UQAM.
Post Doctoral Research
I would also like to announce that I have begun working in the Landhäusser Research Group at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada . If you are curious to know what I’ll be working on click on Post-Doctoral Content Tab or Click HERE.
I will be presenting my second chapter of my phd thesis ” Local adaptation of trees at the range margins slows range shifts in the face of climate change” at the University of Vermont, in Burlington. The presentation is scheduled for the afternoon on September 30th, 2016.
“Climate Change and Our Forests: A Canadian Perspective”
Climate change is expected to increase mean annual temperature in our region 2-7°C by the end of this century. While for many of us this sounds like the opportunity to take advantage of more days at the beach, such a rapid change could cause significant damage to the forest ecosystem and its many important processes. In this talk, I will discuss some of the impacts and potential challenges we are currently faced with when ensuring the health of our forests. Finally, I will also discuss some of the research I am currently conducting in a means of evaluating the impacts of such changes on Sugar Maple, an important species in our region.
