Research

I work to enable forest conservation and management that delivers local economic development, clean water and habitat for fish and wildlife, and long-term forest health and resilience. I have worked professionally for the past decade applying geospatial analysis and reproducible data science using remote sensing, forest growth models, and intensive computation to develop new technologies and information that empower private and public land managers with actionable science to guide creative solutions to complex forestry problems. I am the Director of Forestry Technology & Analytics at the Portland-based nonprofit, Ecotrust. My PhD research at UW focused on mining public data from satellites and inventory datasets to build better tools and models for mapping and monitoring forests, and to predict how they respond to management interventions and climate change.
