Current Research

In my current research, I am evaluating the effects of fuel treaments on fire hazard and fire behavior, postdisturbance logging on fire hazard and fire behavior, and bark beetles on fire hazard and fire behavior.

Research Interests

Fire ecology, fuel treatments and fire behavior, and simulation modeling.

Past Research

My past work includes studies of fuels planning and fuel treatments in dry forests of the Western United States and a fire hazard assessment and decomposition study of Washington State's Cedar River Municipal Watershed.

Why This Research is Important

My research helps fire and forest managers make informed decisions based on current scientifc information.
