New team member: Tommaso Jucker

January 25th, 2017

Welcome to Tommaso Jucker, a new ECE team research scientist.


Tommaso Jucker will join the Ecosystem Change Ecology team at CSIRO as a Research Scientist in March 2017. His research is broadly focused on understanding what determines the composition, structure and function of plant communities, in an effort to predict how these will respond to rapid global change. Before joining CSIRO, Tommaso has been a PostDoc at the University of Cambridge, where he also completed his PhD in 2015 under the supervision of Prof David Coomes. During this period he became interested in using airborne remote sensing data such as LiDAR and hyperspectral imagery to better understand the ecological processes that shape the structure and function of forest ecosystems. He also has a longstanding interest in how invasive plant species establish and spread outside of their native range, and how this in turn affects the composition and function of recipient communities.
