I am a forest biometrician and quantitative silviculturist. Research in my lab focuses on the use of quantitative techniques to describe the structure, function, and dynamics of forests from the stand to regional scales. Although much of the research my team and I perform is centered on the mixed-species forests of New England, my group is engaged in projects elsewhere in the U.S. (such as the Blue Mountains ecoregion in northeastern Oregon), with colleagues in Europe (Norway, Spain), Australia, New Zealand, Costa Rica, and Brazil.
