My current research is aimed at enhancing the large-fire simulation module of the Fire Program Analysis (FPA) system, which is used to estimate burn probability and characterize expected fire behavior across the national landscape. To support this work, I developed and now maintain a geodatabase of national fire-occurrence records.
