Research Q & A

What’s your hometown?

Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

What are you currently working on?

I am currently working on understanding how forest management treatments interact with climate change, and how we can best support healthy forests in north central Minnesota given the impacts of climate change in the region. I’m doing this specifically by focusing on seedling growth and health in varying management treatments, including under potential drought scenarios, at the Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change (ASCC) experiment.

How did you get started/what drew you to your area of study?

I’ve always loved being outdoors, and I was drawn to the opportunity to spend time outdoors while also working to support healthy forests and ecosystems.

Where are you working on research/field work?

My field sites are located in north-central Minnesota, in the Chippewa National Forest, which is Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe land.

What will your next steps/research be?

My next steps are analyzing data that I have collected so far, and interpreting what might be happening at my research sites as I write my dissertation chapters. And I’m always looking forward to getting back out into the forest!
