I’m currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Saleska lab. I am broadly interested in understanding the ecological process underlying plant co-existence and niche partitioning in high diverse tropical ecosystem. My research focuses describing plant water use strategies and how do plants cope with extreme drought in this ecosystem. My research goal is to understand how plant hydraulic trait plasticity is important for tree survival in water limited ecosystem. I seek to understand how plant ontogeny is impacted by the hydrological niche changes with vapor pressure deficit in vertical forest structure and seasonal changes vertical soil water moisture.
