My name is Joseph Stinziano, and I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Dr. Danielle A. Way’s lab at the University of Western Ontario in Canada. For my dissertation, I am studying the effects of climate change on on tree species, using ecophysiological techniques and mathematical modelling. I recently returned from a research exchange as a Fulbright Visiting Researcher in Dr. David T. Hanson’s lab at the University of New Mexico, studying the underpinnings of photosynthetic gas exchange theory.
My previous work during my undergraduate degree involved freezing tolerance in frogs and desiccation tolerance in flies. I have a passion for communicating science through blogging and Twitter (@JosephStinziano), and using my scientific training to give back to the community, which currently involves sitting on the Environmental and Ecological Advisory Committee (EEPAC) in the City of London. If you wish to learn more about my work, check out my publications page, where you can download my published work or read summaries of the articles. I upload my articles as they are made available online, so if one isn’t up yet, stay tuned!
I am also the Social Media Coordinator for the scientific journal Tree Physiology (http://treephys.oxfordjournals.org/) where I run the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Tree-Physiology-112032212203909) and blog for the Tree Physiology section on the Annals of Botany Blog (https://aobblog.com/category/treephys/).
