About Kiri Joy
I am passionate about forest and community ecology and learning how to restore native terrestrial ecosystems. Going hand-in-hand with that, I like to restore people's connection with nature, helping them enjoy and benefit from it! Ecological research sparks my interest and allows me to shine, whatever a specific project may entail.
Thank you for any interest you may have in my research group but I am not currently taking any new students.
