Andres got his MSc in Ecology at the University of Bordeaux on the hydraulic resistance of maritime pine branches (under the supervision of Sylvain Delzon). He is currently a PhD candidate at the university of Cambridge (under the supervision of Howard Griffiths and Lisa Wingate). Using a highly original approach to integrate seasonal phenology, carbon balance, xylem growth, sap flow and cavitation repair, his aims are to assess how the availability of carbohydrates is affected by seasonal events and the significance of this for hydraulic conductance (xylem function) and primary production in temperate trees.
