The primary goal of my research is to understand the response of tropical trees to global change and anthropogenic threats. Currently, I focus on two major directions: (1) the adaptation of tropical trees to physiological stress, and (2) the population genomics and conservation management of tropical trees species. In both directions, my team and I utilize genomic techniques and tools to assess the molecular changes in individuals, populations and species under stress and under threat.
