I received a doctorate from the University of California, Davis Geography Graduate Group in June of 2011. My primary interest is in the development of algorithms and software tools for geo-spatial data applied to managing forests and modeling forest based industrial systems (energy, fuels, wood-products).
Research background and objectives
Rapidly increasing capacity generate and store aerial and satellite data has not been met with increases in capacity to generate knowledge relevant to meeting climate, energy, and forest management goals. New or expanding markets for forest products including bioelectricity, biofuel, carbon offsets, as well as ecosystem services imply a wide range of forest management options. My research objective is to develop tools to analyze the environmental and economic impacts of such markets and to develop technology that enables forest managers to access emerging markets.
