My research combines fire ecology, invasion ecology, big data, and spatial analyses to understand how people impact wildfire regimes in the United States. I am particularly interested in communicating science between researchers, policy makers, and land managers to help reach conservation goals. I also work extensively with the Northeast Regional Invasive Species and Climate Change Management Network creating and translating actionable science for invasive species managers.
