Current Research

I assist program scientists in the design, implementation, and data analysis of research studies. Current studies I am currently working on are (1) secondary plant succession and regeneration establishment following the wildfires of 2000-2003 in Montana, Oregon, and Idaho; and (2) connecting forest inventories to Lidar measurements. I maintain a set of permanent plots, and the associated data, for measuring forest growth and development over time. These plots are scattered in the forests of northern Idaho, northeastern Washington, and western Montana. I also supervise field crews in taking measurements at research study sites and permanent plots. Back at the lab, I led an effort by lab employees to convert part of the lawn to a native Palouse prairie.
