Research Interests

Ecological silviculture, restoration silviculture, riparian silviculture, physiological mechanisms of tree stress tolerance, genecology, climate change

Education

  • University of Claifornia, Berkeley, Doctor of Philosophy My Ph.D. curriculum was focused on silviculture and forest soils. My dissertation research examined the ecophysiological mechanisms underlying water-use and growth relationships of interacting planted conifers and shrubs., 1991
  • Purdue University, Master of Science, Forestery My M.S.F. curriculum was focused on silviculture and forest soils. My theis research examined the influence of light availability on survival and growth of white oak seedlings. , 1981
  • University of Minnesota, Bachelor of Science, Forestry My B.S. curriculum was focused on Forest resource Management with an elective core of Silviculture and Forest Ecosystems. , 1979

Professional Experience

  • Supervisory Research Forester, USDA Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station, Corvallis, Oregon
    2002 - Current
    As a Team Leader and scientist I conduct silviculture and ecophysiology research related to management of young stands of the Douglas-fir/western hemlock province, riparian silviculture, restoration silvicutlure in dry ponderosa pine and mixed conifer forests, and post-fire reforestation and fuels development. My work emphasizes multi-diciplinary approaches with an emphasis on characterizing functional relationships driving forest repsonses to silvicultural manipulations. As a Team Leader, I supervise a multidisciplinary group of scientists, professional staff and students engaged in research that explicitly addresses the linkages and interactions among aquatic, riparian and terrestrial elements of managed watersheds and landscapes.
  • Research Plant Physiologist, USDA Forest Service, North Central Research Station, Rhinelander Wisconsin
    1993 - 2000
    As a member of RWU-4155, Genetic and Molecular Bases of Tree Stress Tolerance, I conducted studies to characterize the physiological relationships underlying individual tree responses to the interactive effects of elevated carbon dioxide and water stress. I also undertook an interdisciplinary study to evaluate the degree to which genetic population structuring in eastern white pine was related to spatial variation in the Lake States environment.
