I am a professor in the Department of Science and Technology at TÉLUQ, Université du Québec, and a researcher at the Centre of Forest Research.

I am interested in applying concepts and models from complex systems science to study forest ecosystems at multiple scales. My interdisciplinary research activities are focused on developing quantitative, theoretical and applied modelling and analysis tools in the study of two main themes:

  • The dynamics of ecological communities in forest landscapes.
    How do inter- and intraspecific interactions between individuals, and their dispersal ability influence the dynamics of their population at different temporal and spatial scales?
  • The interplay between forest management and forest function.
    How do interactions between ecological processes and management affect the dynamics and function of forest ecosystems?
