I joined the Forest Service in 1988 as a Research Forester in Morgantown, WV, working on impacts of gypsy moth. In October 1994, I received a reassignment to Burlington, VT, where I am Project Leader of NE-4454, Integrating the Ecological and Social Dimensions of Forest Ecosystem Management.

My primary personal research focus is NED, a set of decision-support tools for forest management for multiple benefits. Other research interests include biotic disturbances in forests, regeneration dynamics, stand development, and the roles of humans in the ecosystem.

I have a B.A. in Theater Arts from Oberlin College, an M.S. in Forest Ecology from the University of Massachusetts, and a Ph.D in Silviculture from Yale University. My resume can be viewed at this link.

I am a generalist, whose previous professional experience includes being the Technical Director for the Chelsea Theater Center, an Off-Broadway producing company, Cheese Buyer for a regional food co-op organization, and partner in a custom woodworking company.
