- Science Delivery Specialist, Rocky Mountain Research Station
2011 - Current
I work with both RMRS research scientists and land managers throughout the Interior West to develop and deliver science relevant to Forest Planning, assessing climate change vulnerability, planning for climate change adaptation, and more. I am the editor of “The Science You Can Use Bulletin” (http://www.fs.fed.us/rm/science-application-integration/publications/), a bi-monthly RMRS publication with a distribution to thousands of land and resource managers in the Interior West. I currently serve as co-chair of the Climate Change Resource Center (www.fs.usda.gov/ccrc) and have been a member of the Production Team since 2010.
- Resource Specialist, Northeastern Area State and Private Forestry and Northern Research Station
2007 - 2011
I served as a Presidential Management Fellow and resource specialist with the Northeastern Area S&PF and the Northern Research Station. In this position, I helped to deliver carbon and climate change-related research and information to land managers and develop projects to facilitate mitigation and adaptation to climate change on state and private forests.
