Education Ph.D. in Geography, Pennsylvania State University
M.A. in Environmental and Resources Policy, George Washington University
B.A. in Environmental Science, Wesleyan University
Teaching I teach courses in biogeography, water resources, forest ecology and policy, and introductory environmental science. See the Courses link above for more information
Research My research interests center on questions about natural and human disturbances to forests. See the Research Link above for more information. I use tree rings to help interpret past disturbances and their impacts on forests, such as fire, climate and competition. I am currently looking for two research assistants for the Zena Ecological Restoration Initiative at Willamette University's 300-acre Zena Forest during the summer of 2011.
