Our lab quantifies the potential risk of disturbances, especially wildfire, on terrestrial ecosystems and develops better ways to manage landscapes under climate change. 


Some of our most beautiful landscapes are being threatened by rising temperatures, changes in the amount and/or timing of precipitation, and increases in disturbance frequency and/or severity. We study these areas and try to develop better ways to manage them in the hopes of promoting landscape resilience. Our work is done in partnership with a whole host of collaborators across the U.S. and Canada.
