Our MSc students:
Climate change, tree ecophysiology
My research focuses on how the changing climate affects wintertime physiology of trees. Particularly I am currently studying the effect of freezing and thawing on trees and the future concenquences of global warming in the northern forests.
Methane cycling in a Northern Boreal Watershed
My thesis topic is studying methane cycling in a Northern Boreal Watershed. As part of this project, I am conducting chemical and microbial analysis. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and understanding its cycles in an important part of calculating global budgets and the impact it has on climate change.
Environmental Change and Global Sustainability master’s student, Faculty of Biological and Environmental studies
Remote sensing of photosynthesis
My MSc thesis will focus on remote sensing optical signals of two species of saplings in response to drought or heat stress. My research is based on a project that explores the potential relationship between BVOC emissions and optical signals and the factors controlling it.
Using a mass-produced drone to retrieve canopy traits
I am a Spanish exchange student who performed his MSc Thesis at the Ecosystem Processes Research Group. My thesis topic focused on how to use a mass-produced drone to retrieve canopy traits using spherical photography. My plans include a remote sensing focused research stay at North Carolina State University in early 2022.
