Current Research

My current research focuses on the ecological role of disturbance in hardwood forest ecosystems of the Cumberland Plateau and associated highlands. I am interested in defining the appropriate silvicultural techniques for sustaining the production of desired benefits in the region. My initial activities in this new program are focusing on understanding vegetation distribution in relation to environmental gradients and understanding structural and compositional dynamics in response to disturbance. Several studies have been installed in the region which will test vegetation manipulation treatments and allow for analysis of their impacts on the dynamics, productivity, and sustainability of upland hardwood forests.
