I do research on the impacts of fire and invasive plants on forest ecosystems using remote sensing and GIS. I am currently finishing up a project to map and study the distribution of the invasive shrub Amur Honeysuckle (Lonicera maackii). See my web page for more information or check out my blog for what I’ve been up to. Prospective graduate students should see my research page for more information and PDFs of my publications.
