Research Interests
  • Conservation Biology
  • Fire Ecology
  • Landscape Ecology
I focus on landscape ecology, fire ecology, biogeography, and conservation science. In my lab group we work at scales from local to global, addressing the causes and effects of ecological disturbances, with a particular interest in landscape fire. We generally think of ourselves as pyrogeographers (such a great word): studying biotic and abiotic conditions responsible for the spatial distribution of fire, the fire ecology that results within burn mosaics, and the land management and cultural decisions that sets this all in play historically, now, and in future times.
