If you are interested in learning more about tree conservation, please visit this site with links to lots of great resources, including for kids. (Thanks to Chris in Ms. Wagner’s class for sending this to me!)

I am a research professor in the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources, in the College of Natural Resources at North Carolina State University, where I am a part of the Forest Health Monitoring Research Group. The group is affiliated with the Eastern Forest Environmental Threat Assessment Center (EFETAC), part of the Southern Research Station of the United States Forest Service.

I have strong research associations with the Forest Health Monitoring and Forest Inventory and Analysis programs of the U.S. Forest Service, as well as the Forest Health Assessment and Applied Sciences team. I also collaborate often with the Camcore international tree conservation and domestication program at NC State.

If you are interested in learning more about my work, feel free to take a look at my official NC State University faculty page, my EFETAC profile page or my United States Forest Service Research & Development profile page. I also have a ResearchGate profile, a Google Scholar profile, and an ORCID profile. (I am doing my best to cover my bases with these platforms, which seem to multiply all the time!)

Finally, I am part of a team of researchers, led by Songlin Fei at Purdue University, working on a National Science Foundation MacroSystems Biology project titled Modeling Invasion Dynamics Across Scales (MIDAS). I also helped with an earlier NSF MacroSystems Biology project called Predicting Regional Invasion Dynamic Processes (PRIDE).
