Research Ecologist, United States Forest Service

I am a research ecologist with the USDA Forest Service's Rocky Mountain Research Station at the Missoula Fire Sciences Lab. My research focuses primarily on understanding how the combined effects of changes in climate and changes to fire regimes affect forest resilience and the implications for forest management. Current research projects include: Understanding how climate change may impact post-fire conifer forest recovery, assessing the effectiveness of climate-adaptive post-fire reforestation strategies, and projecting potential changes in vegetation due to climate change to help inform management of post-fire vegetation transitions.
