Mark Kreider

Ph.D. Candidate in Forest and Conservation Science, University of Montana

I'm an ecologist, NSF Graduate Research Fellow and Ph.D. candidate in the W.A. Franke College of Forestry & Conservation at the University of Montana. My research focuses on understanding the natural role of wildfire, how ecosystems and societies respond to disturbance, and how to make public lands accessible to all. I'm passionate about linking art and science to communicate my work in accessible and engaging ways. Learn more at
