Tarmo Remmel is an Associate Professor of Geography at York University.  He received his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto in 2005 and prior to joining York, was a contract lecturer at the University of Toronto at Mississauga while working as a Post Doc.  He holds a master of science in forestry degree from Lakehead University (2000) and an honours bachelor of environmental studies with a minor in the Earth sciences from the University of Waterloo (1998).  Dr. Remmel conducts research related to the measurement, quantification, and comparison of spatial patterns, generally within disturbed boreal environments.  He is working to understand the processes and conditions that lead to the presence of residual forest stands after wildfires have burned through areas and to develop predictive models that will benefit the emulation of natural disturbances by forest harvesting practices.  His research ranges from the characterization of complex boundaries, to shapes, and ultimately spatial patterns and their linkages with ecological processes.
