  • Postdoctoral Researcher
Tatiana Shestakova

Dr. Tatiana Shestakova studies the impact of wildfires, land use, and other disturbances on the spatial distribution, carbon cycling, and ecosystem services of primary boreal forests in Siberia. She is particularly interested in understanding the reaction of trees of different biomes to environmental changes, with the ultimate goal of deciphering forest ecosystem dynamics and productivity.

Dr. Shestakova holds B.S. and M.Sc. degrees in Geographic Information Systems & Remote Sensing from Siberian Federal University in Russia, and earned a Ph.D. with International Mention from the University of Barcelona in Spain. She grew up in the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk.
