She is interested in understanding the management-driven mechanisms determining forest composition, structure and dynamics. During her Ph. D entitle "The effects of prescribed burning on the vigour of Mediterranean pines” she acquired experience on dendrochronology, gas chromatography techniques and on the use of stable isotope dendrochronology to extract information about the physiological responses of trees to environmental stressors.
