Biography

Ali is a forest ecologist and dendrochronologist (tree rings) who specializes in understanding tree response to environmental change. She has worked with FEMC over the years, first as a graduate student studying tree growth in the FEMCs long-term study site at Mt. Mansfield and as a part-time staff member to author the annual reports. Now at the FEMC, she coordinates and oversees regional and state scientific projects.
