My broad experiences in forestry, ecology, genetics and entomology inspire me to conduct research, in collaboration with other scientists and stakeholders, which explore the complex interactions that define forest ecosystems. I focus on questions related to the patterns and functions of forests in response to human-induced changes in climate, land use, and the introduction of non-native invasive terrestrial organisms. Recently, I’ve integrated environmental sociology and ecological economics into my research approach to explore the human-dimensions of management decisions and land-use change.
