As a Climate Change Outreach Specialist for the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, I am responsible for supporting many components of the Climate Change Response Framework projects. My activities include building and strengthening partnerships, synthesizing research into non-technical language for a variety of audiences, developing tools for forest managers, and promoting the use of tools in adaptive forest management.
My main projects include:
