My teaching goal is to help students develop technical and critical thinking skills that are applicable to a career in sustainable forest management. My teaching areas include forest health, natural resources field methods, geographic information systems, timber harvesting, forest products, and forest management.
I am also a PhD Candidate in Earth and Environmental Science in the UNH NRESS program. My doctoral research investigates the insects, pathogens, and site factors associated with widespread red pine decline throughout New England.
