Postdoctoral Associate in Ecology, University of Colorado Boulder

Dr. Kyra Clark-Wolf is a Postdoctoral Associate in Ecology in CIRES at CU Boulder, studying ecological transformation in a context of changing climate and disturbance regimes. Kyra’s research interests integrate perspectives from paleoecology, fire ecology, and ecosystem ecology. At the NC CASC, Kyra is working on the development of ecological scenarios given uncertainty in future climate to inform resource management using the Resist, Accept, Direct (RAD) framework. Her dissertation work utilized lake-sediment records to understand fire-climate-ecosystem interactions over centuries to millennia in Rocky Mountain subalpine forests. She has also led research in recent wildfires investigating post-fire conifer seedling demographic processes and relationships with microclimate conditions. Kyra received a B.A. in Environmental Science from Colorado College and a Ph.D. in Systems Ecology from the University of Montana.
