Current Research

I am a Forester in the Northern Research Station's Forest Inventory and Analysis (NRS-FIA) group. I serve as the lead analyst for Iowa and Missouri. I analyze and report on the status and trends in the forest resource based on FIA data.

Why This Research is Important

Detailed and comprehensive data deserves thoughtful analysis and thorough reporting. My goal is to provide insight into this data that is useful to all users, from foresters and land managers to policy makers and forest landowners.
