Current Research

Currently serving as a liaison between Forest Service R&D and the policy community on issues related to greenhouse gas mitigation, bioenergy, carbon "offset" markets, and certification systems. Recent research includes examination of similarities between and barriers to dual certification for both carbon offsets and forest management certification.

In addition, I also serve as a Washington Office contact for tribal-related research.
