Current Research

In my current position with the Fire Modeling Institute, I provide fire and spatial analysis support in response to specific, local to national level resource management requests.

Research Interests

I am generally interested in using remote sensing, simulation modeling and spatial analysis techniques to explore fire and landscape ecology questions.

Past Research

Research that explores the benefits and limitations of simulation modeling and mapping technologies, combined with efforts to communicate this information to managers is essential to support the fire management decision making process.

Why This Research is Important

My research has involved exploring and utilizing several different ecosystem simulation models to determine appropriate landscape extent, map fire hazard and risk and evaluate the ecological benefits of wildfire. I recently completed a project that compares model and satellite image-based burn severity mapping methods.
