Stockton Maxwell here. I'm an assistant professor of Geospatial Science at Radford University (VA). My academic training is varied. I started out as a behavioral psychologist, moved onto forest ecology, and ended up as a biogeographer with ecological intentions. All of which are terribly interesting and continue to occupy my time. Researchwise, I specialize in applications of dendrochronology including forest disturbance history, carbon sequestration, paleoclimate reconstruction, and a host of other forest ecological and biogeographic phenomena. In addition to tree rings, I utilize statistical, ecological, and geospatial techniques to investigate topics of interests.
You can follow me on Twitter @StocktonMaxwell where I post sciencey stuff.
