Current Research

My work integrates spatial and statistical analyses in developing tools and understanding of basic forest ecology to assist natural resource professionals in managing forest ecosystems in the face of a changing climate. Current areas of focus include implementing remote sensing technologies for mapping regional forest types, composition, and phenology, as well as quantifying interactions and interdependencies between forest wildlife and plant communities.
