Current Research

I currently work to support experiments and research at Missoula's Fire Sciences Laboratory including: the study of fire spread in deep and discontinuous fuel beds, predicting surface wind flow, improvement of existing firefighter safety zone guidelines, develop a new understanding into the fundamental physics governing wildland fire ignition, spread and intensity, along with improved methods for quantifying wildland fire intensity using in-situ instrumentation and remote sensing to validate satellite algorithms.

Research Interests

Innovative techniques and tools to study fire behavior.

Why This Research is Important

I have industrial experience in biomass energy production and systems, large industrial process control and data acquisition systems. Additionally I have supervisory and management exerience with several fortune 500 forest products industry companies. I have US patents on new technologies for difficult chemical separations.
