My research focuses on climate change effects on tree growth at arctic and alpine treelines. I use dendrochronological proxies such as tree rings, wood density, and wood anatomy to investigate climate-growth responses at different temporal resolution (annual to sub-weekly). In my current project, I combine wood anatomy/xylogenesis with forward models to better understand how temperature and moisture availability have interacted in limiting tree growth over the past decades.
