Jorge Aldea
Postdoc at the Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre focusing on Forest Growth Dynamics and Sustainable Forest Management in the context of global change

Presentation

I have a professional background as a technical and researcher assistant at public and private companies within several inter-sectorial teams (mycology and forest bioeconomy) from before my doctoral period. I participated in several national and international technology and knowledge transfer projects. For my PhD, I studied tree growth dynamics and silvicultural treatments in Mediterranean mixed forests. This work developed forest management practices with important implications in the face of ongoing climate change. My first post-doctoral position was in the Ecology group at the Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre (SLU), focused on the silviculture and growth dynamics of mixed forests as a tool for forest climate change adaptation and mitigation. A particular achievement was to join a large European project with 13 partners from 10 countries. Due to my interest in mixed forests, I did a second post-doc in the Silvicultural group of the same department at SLU to assess the long-term impacts of increased species mixture on the diversity and bioeconomy of boreal forests. Important results include basic scientific knowledge, support for silvicultural decisions and guidelines for the management of mixed stands in northern Europe.

As result of my research activity, I have published 22 papers (6 as first author) in multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journals (SCI) with high impact. According to Web of Science I have an h-index of 12 and 348 total citations (excluding self-citations). I have participated in 19 national and international research projects, being a leader in 5 of them (44,390 € total granted) and a co-applicant in 2 others (230,900 € total granted). With my multidisciplinary scientific profile, broad contact networks, and own experiences of mobility (pre-doctoral stay at INRA-France and postdocs in Sweden), I have significantly contributed to the recent growth of knowledge on Forest Growth Dynamics and Sustainable Forest Management.

I have participated in numerous national and international congresses, with 36 contributions (18 as first author), including in the Cost-Action FP1206 about European mixed forests. I co-organized a IUFRO international congress about the resilience and management of mixed forests in 2020, although it was ultimately cancelled due to the pandemic. I have collaborated on 4 scientific and technical books, authoring 15 chapters (6 as main author). It is noteworthy that my collaboration in several projects involved open science and innovation. I am leader of a high-priority research project of the Forest Damage Center at SLU which is developing a software module for a forest decision support system to evaluate the effect of wind disturbance under climate change in Sweden. I have also led two projects in collaboration with Skogforsk (the Forestry Research Institute of Sweden) consisting of beech provenance trials in Sweden. My earlier work and pre-PhD project collaborations, focused in non-timber forest products, gave me multidisciplinary experience in technological development activities, such us services and technical assistance for industry, private and public institutions. 

Teaching

My PhD studies included teaching experience in the “Forestry and Global Change” course in the forestry bachelor’s programme at the University of Valladolid. I was responsible for the lab exercises during 2016 and 2017. I am currently teaching in two courses in EUROFORESTER, a two-year international master´s programme at the Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre (SLU). One course is “Sustainable forestry in southern Sweden”. Since 2020 I have participated in theoretical lectures, field excursions, study cases and lab practices focused on forest management and forest ecology in managed stands. The other course is “Broadleaves - Forest dynamics, biodiversity and management for multiple use”, in which I have collaborated on several theoretical lectures since 2018. I am also enthusiastically teaching in one course in the Forest and Landscape Bachelor of Science in the same department which started in 2021. I am leader of the module “Mensuration and Biometrics” in the course “Trees, structure and function”.

Trees, structure and function

Alongside my teaching activity, I have completed six pedagogical courses for teaching in higher education in several important areas: education for sustainable development, critical thinking, examination and grading, e-learning methodologies and student supervision.

Research

My main research line is based in the field of "Forest Growth Dynamics and Sustainable Forest Management”, which aims to improve scientific knowledge of growth dynamics of forest systems in the context of global change and provide science-based sustainable silvicultural guidelines for practical application in forestry. Within the main line of my research, three aims can be distinguished, which follow the progression of my research career:

1. Integrating forest production and other ecosystem services into forest management and the broader bio-economy. I participated in several multidisciplinary and international research projects at public and private companies. I have contributed to technology and knowledge transfer by publishing several peer-reviewed papers and book chapters on bio-economy and non-timber forest products.

2. Providing scientific knowledge on growth dynamics and supporting silvicultural decisions for the management of mixed stands. During my PhD and two international post-doc positions, I joined several national and international research projects (one financed by the EU) focused on this objective. I significantly contributed to the outstanding increase of knowledge on the topic with numerous publications and an extensive international collaboration network.

3. Assessing the risk of damage and forest vulnerability under different biotic and abiotic disturbances exacerbated by climate change. I lead two research projects, three projects based on the technology and knowledge transfer, and I was co-IP of two other research projects for this objective. My contributions include different methods of risk assessment, creating a module in forest management software and looking for smart forestry solutions to face forest damage from abiotic (drought and wind) and biotic (diseases) factors caused by climate change.
