Department: Natural Resource Ecology and Management
Research Interests: Landscape and disturbance ecology
Brief description of current research:
I am interested in the causes, patterns, and consequences of land use and land cover change--emphasizing long time periods and broad spatial scales--and managing forest and agroecosystems for multifunctionality. I seek an integrated approach to research, incorporating ecological and socioeconomic dimensions where possible and appropriate.
