Lucie has been a NERC-funded Daphne Jackson Fellow in the Geography department since 2016. She obtained her MSc in Sustainable Management of Natural Resources (ULS, Norway) and PhD in Forest Ecology (UBC, Canada) and gained a considerable experience monitoring and managing forest resources in North America and Europe. Lucie’s research has revolved around interaction between forest ecosystem structure and function, and how these were modified by natural and anthropogenic disturbances. She has been interested in application of the principles of forest ecology in silviculture and forest management. She is also motivated by the challenge to reconcile diverse resource use objective in planning and management. Her experience ranges from environmental monitoring, surveys, manipulative field and laboratory experiments, to planning, and evaluating natural resource management and operations. Lucie is excited about expanding the scope of her research to larger spatial scale and adding simulation modelling to her toolkit, in assessing dynamics of ecosystem services provision in the context of forest restoration and land use changes.
