I began my academic career by learning how to model in the context of forestry science. Due to this I conducted my PhD work in forest ecology and statistics and modelled their dynamics and structure. Throughout my doctoral studies and my work afterwards I analysed and modelled various aspects of tree and forest stands, thus deepening my knowledge in R and in statistical analysis. I also continued my work learning about forest simulators.
As a postdoctoral fellow at UQAT, through working with SORTIE-ND and studying the successional dynamics, I aim to apply my previous knowledges, in boreal forests and mixed stands, and extend my expertise in forest ecology, statistics and modelling.
