Laboratory Research Technician

I am a research technician for Tony D'Amato's Silviculture and Applied Forest Ecology Lab. My work involves collecting, analyzing, and managing forest inventory data, processing samples in the lab, and coordinating summer fieldwork. As a recent RSENR Environmental Sciences graduate (class of 2020), I developed an interest in forestry research while working as a temporary field technician for the lab in the summer of 2019.  I have been enamored with northern hardwood forests ever since and love spending long days out in the woods!
