My research interest lies in the field of tropical forest restoration. My study is currently based in a large scale biodiversity experiment in the Malaysian state of Sabah, on the island of Borneo. I examine the initial impacts of the attempts to restore biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in logged forest trough enrichment planting and alternative silvicultural practices (climber cutting/liberation thinning) on the dominant tree species, the dipterocarp family and arthropod community in these forests.
