Welcome!

247254_10150321626797576_6574041_nI am an Associate Professor of Geography in the Environmental Studies department at Western Washington University. I use dendrochronology, GIS, and quantitative methods to study the role of climatic variability, human land use patterns, and natural disturbances in shaping forest, alpine, and coastal ecosystem dynamics. I teach physical geography (climatology and biogeography) and geospatial techniques courses.
