Current Research
I assist program scientists in the design, implementation, and data analysis of research studies, primarily related to silviculture in the northern Rocky Mountains.  I maintain a set of permanent plots, and the associated data, for measuring forest growth and development over time. These plots are scattered in the forests of northern Idaho, northeastern Washington, and western Montana. I also supervise field crews in taking measurements at research study sites and permanent plots. Back at the lab, I led an effort by lab employees to convert part of the lawn to a native Palouse prairie.
