Bruno Barusco

Bruna Barusco is a PhD student studying available forest growth and yield models in relation to wildfire risk and water security in the Sooke water basin. Her research will focus on modelling climate scenarios using a generic carbon budget model (GCBM) to estimate fire effects on carbon budget. The overarching objective of this work is to reduce wildfire risk through the development of forest management practices in order to secure water supply for the Greater Victoria area.
