Broadly, I am interested in studying how natural communities respond to anthropogenic and natural disturbances and applying this research towards informing and improving land management and conservation practices. My current research focuses on ponderosa pine forests and fire - more specifically, studying how fire suppression influences stand development, fuel accumulation, and, ultimately, forest resiliency to future wildfire.
