Current Research

I provide geospatial analysis and data managment support for the research scientists at the Institute for Applied Ecosystem Studies. This research explores solutions to resilience of forest ecosystems and extreme forest disturbances. I apply simulation models, GIS and statistical software to explore impacts of management decisions and changing climate on the Lake States and northeast US ecosystems. I also provide mangement support to the Northern Research Station Research Natural Areas program.
