Research

Early in my career I studied silviculuture, and forest and riparian area management and restoration as part of OSU’s College of Forestry’s Coastal Oregon Productivity Enhancement Program. Since 2001 I have worked for the State of Oregon’s Independent Multidisciplinary Science Team and analyze scientific literature on several natural resource issues in Oregon (including forest management, in-stream aggregate mining, agriculture, urban land uses, restoration, and monitoring) and contribute to technical reports and reviews for the IMST.
