Current Research

Provide scientifically rigorous research methods, knowledge, and results to improve the understanding and integration of social and economic values and effects with ecosystem processes in natural resource planning and decision-making for both public and private land management. Conduct forest economics research on utilization of forest biomass for bioenergy and bioproducts, forest operations, forest products industry, forest-based carbon accounting of greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation, and wildland fire.
