PhD - Candidate - Natural Resources Science and Management, University of Minnesota
M.S. Natural Resources Science and Management, University of Minnesota, 2013 B.S. Forest Resources: Urban and Community Forestry, University of Minnesota, 2012 A.A.S. Computer Networking Systems, Dunwoody Institute of Technology, 2001
Areas of Expertise
Urban forestry, arboriculture, and urban tree ring analysis
Areas of Interest
My research focuses on how urban trees response to the environmental conditions in urban forests. Tree ring analysis helps to provide information on urban tree growth through time and determine the impacts of construction activities, climate, and site characteristics on the performance of street and park trees. I also work with volunteers in the Minnesota Tree Care Advocate program, the Minnesota Master Gardner program, and the Minnesota Master Naturalists program as well as the Minnesota Certified Tree Inspector program.
