Halim is currently studying different biogeophysical and biogeochemical aspects of fire and harvesting in the boreal forest. He is also interested in biochar as a means of climate change mitigation tool and soil amendment. His research broadly focuses on understanding how human activities (particularly forestry) affects our climate, and vice versa, in the tropics, temperate, and boreal regions. He is passionate about building low-cost instruments to study/monitor forest microclimate. He is nourished by open-source/-access resources, and thus, a huge fan of these resources, and committed to contribute to their development.
