Sami spent June-July 2014 visiting our research group at INPE. His dissertation research has primarily focused upon examining how catastrophic wind disturbance affects tree diversity within the northwestern. Amazon. Currently, Sami is using MODIS to examine the size-frequency distribution of large blowdown events in the northwestern Amazon.
