Present Research Activities

I am working now with Prof. Martin Lechowicz in McGill University in three topics in forest ecology include:

  1. Tree death and recovery ten years after the 1998 ice storm
  2. Impact of quarry dust on Hemlock growth
  3. Comparative eco-physiology of beech saplings.

I am looking for further co-operation with any Canadian Ecologist or Ecophysiologist to continue my research in forest ecology.

Research Interests and Experience

  • Artificial forests
  • Population and community ecology of terrestrial and wetland vegetation
  • Plant competition and allelopathy
  • Experienced in plant quantitative anatomy and eco-physiological analysis of plant, soil, water and air samples (MSC experience)
  • Experienced in population biology and vegetation analysis using Multivariate methods (Ph.D. experience)


I am acquiring good experience, through my Postdoctoral fellowship in McGill University, with photosynthetic Infrared Gas Analyzer (IRGA) and Eye-Fish photography and its related software. Moreover, I have a lot of experience with the most common lab. and field instruments.
