Dr Lo graduated in Forest and Natural Resource Management at the National Taiwan University, and obtained a PhD in Forest Ecology from the University of British Columbia (Canada). She is currently working as a Research Fellow at the Department of Geography, National Taiwan University. During her research, Dr Lo has studied the influence of climate on tree growth and productivity, and developed and tested models to simulate the effects of climate change on tree productivity, combining the use of tree-ring records with field data on biogeochemical factors and tree distribution. She has numerous scientific papers on forest ecology and environmental sciences and is is involved in several research lines studying the long-term influence of environmental factors on tree growth and forest development. In a more short-term perspective, Dr Lo is developing new algorithms to complete the records of eddy covariance to study forest respiration and productivity.
