Research Interest
My research interests primarily relate to understanding and communitacting where our greatest opportunities lie for climate change mitigation through land use. My background is in terrestrial carbon assessment, particularly within the context of tropical forests and REDD+ program implementation, as well as measurement and monitoring impacts from forest landscape restoration activities.  This includes international policy and compliance with commitments to quantify and incentivize actions that lower atmospheric CO2 emissions.
