Harry is a postdoc in the department of Geography and interested in the application of remote sensing techniques to understand forest structure and function. Harry’s work mostly focuses on the use of terrestrial and drone laser scanning data to characterise individual tree structure in three dimensions. A large component of his work involves developing new ways to extract ecologically meaningful metrics from these new datasets to answer questions around how trees compete for space and resources along with the relative roles of species diversity and abiotic conditions (e.g. wind exposure and drought) in moderating tree structure.
