As a geographer and landscape ecologist, I integrate field work, Geographic Information Systems, remote sensing, and simulation modeling to improve our understanding of landscape-scale changes in vegetation and its implications for cross-scale interactions and ecosystem services in terrestrial systems. My work has spanned multiple environments, including the montane forests of northern California, Arctic Alaska, the Appalachian Mountains, and Southwestern rangelands.

I am currently a postdoctoral research associate under the supervision of Dr. Steven R. Archer in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of Arizona. I manage a four-year USDA-NIFA-funded project that investigates the long-term costs and benefits of brush management (tools used to reduce woody cover) on ecosystem services (e.g., plant diversity, primary production, carbon sequestration potential, erosion and runoff, carbon exchange) on a rangeland ecosystem encroached by velvet mesquite (Prosopis velutina).
