PhD Candidate, Department of Anthropology, Colorado State University

I am a Spatial Ecologist at Colorado State University and the U.S. Geological Survey. I study disturbance impacts on forests which can change how an ecosystem works for many years into the future. I combine field studies, satellite sensors and computer modeling to study ecosystems at regional scales to uncover when, why or where these changes took place. I believe the study of disturbance processes hold great clues to determine how our forests are changing and in the process, provide sound science to resource managers and policy makers alike.
