I am a Ph.D candidate studying the ecophysiology of mangroves in New Zealand. I have broad interests in a range of ecological topics including community and functional ecology, ecophysiology and biogeography. My Ph.D project (supervised by Sebastian Leuzinger) focuses on tree growth using New Zealand mangroves as a model ecosystem. We aim to elucidate the specific conditions under which growth occurs at high temporal resolution e.g. intra-day. We are also trying to understand the carbon dynamics of these trees and how carbon source and sink activity contributes to growth under the changing conditions. I worked on the productivity-species richness relationship for my master’s and still maintain active research in this area.
I am also interested in social media as a tool for sharing and interacting with other scientists, as well as communicating science to the public.
