Biography

My research, and that of my graduate students, spans a broad range of the continuum from basic to applied forest ecology. My goal is to conduct research which will make a demonstrable difference in wildland resource management.  Specifically, my research program is in forest ecology and silviculture. I study the structure and function of forest populations and communities--for example, stand dynamics and production ecology. Through my work, I seek to provide a basic understanding of forest populations for those who manage forest vegetation.
