I am an associate professor in the School of Forest Resources at the University of Washington.
I received my BA from Bowdoin College and a masters degree and a PhD in ecology from Utah State University. I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Margaret Chase Smith Center for Public Policy at the University of Maine from 2000-2001. I then served as a National Research Council Associate at the US Environmental Protection Agency from 2001-2003 and a David H. Smith Postdoctoral Fellow in the Zoology Department at Oregon State University from 2004-2006.
My interests lie mainly in the fields of conservation biology and landscape ecology. More specifically, I am interested in how human activities affect ecological systems at large spatial scales.
