My current research focuses on the development of decision support tools for analyzing risk of hazards to human communities and watersheds. My work is focused on three primary research areas: 1) Assessing the temporal trajectories of wildfire risk profiles. 2) The integration of models to perform multi-hazard assessments, in particular wildfire and post wildfire debris flow impacts on water quality and 3) Integrating wildfire risk assessments into the National Forest Planning process.
My research interests are focused on the ecological and social implications of extreme hazard events, in particular as it pertains to economic impacts on human communities and water quality. My current research is focused on using quantitative spatial techniques and computer programming to develop various risk assessment and mitigation tools
