Information om forskning och undervisning

Matheus is a postdoctoral researcher in the Earth Change Observation Lab since April 2019, whose research focuses on understanding what determines the structure and function of plant communities. His work uses remote sensing and field surveys to explore how tropical vegetation responds to global changes. His current project revolves around the use of terrestrial LiDAR to predict the effects of climate and fragmentation on tree canopies and ecosystem functioning in the Amazon, Malaysian Borneo and Kenyan forests. He received his PhD in Plant Sciences from the University of Cambridge in March 2019, where he used airborne LiDAR and field spectroscopy to investigate forest responses to El Niño events and oil palm expansion.
