Based on ecophysiology background and data-analytic skills, my research focuses on carbon cycling coupling with nitrogen and water through forest ecosystems, and how those interactions would respond to changing climates, and to natural- and anthropogenic perturbations. I am further trying to answer how we could shape better ecosystems we are aiming for via e.g. management practices. Under this theme, my work spans from experimental to observational studies, from boreal forests to tropical plantations, and from controlled greenhouse environments to plot-based field, and national, global scale database.


On-going projects
1. Long-term growth pattern of Swedish forest on the basis of the national forest inventory data
2. Interactive effects on carbon partitioning and net primary production in boreal forests between nutrient and water availabilities
3. The effect of climatic variations on stem productivity in response to supply of water and nutrients in Eucalyptus plantations.
4. The effect of soil nitrogen mobility on biomass allocation and hydraulic architecture.
5. Ecosystem carbon storage in response to harvest-residue thinning in a boreal forest
