- University of Claifornia, Berkeley, 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, 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, My B.S. curriculum was focused on Forest resource Management with an elective core of Silviculture and Forest Ecosystems. , 1979

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.

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.
