Fire, Spatial Analysis and GIS

Much of my research is focused on understanding the dynamics of fire regimes at relatively broad scales and using this information in policy, planning, and ecosystem management. I use quantitative analyses of fire history, examining the relative importance of different mechanisms that drive fire patterns on the landscape, and spatial models of fire activity under climate change scenarios.
