Julie conducts spatial analysis and provides research support for the National Fire Decision Support Center in the areas of wildfire economics and decision support. Previously a cooperator with RMRS from the University of Montana, she has participated in several research projects such as the Cohesive Strategy Science Report, Rapid Assessment of Values-at-Risk (RAVAR), and various wildfire risk assessment and fire effects projects.
Current research interests include data and spatial scale issues related to wildfire modeling and risk assessments, downscaling regional wildfire risk assessments, fire behavior modeling and using risk assessment tools to identify potential fuels treatment locations.
