Research Interests:
My general research interests lie in the human dimensions of forest management. I am specifically interested in the role values and attitudes play in determining how people want forests managed. As part of the Stormwise team, my dissertation research focuses on societal perceptions of roadside forests and roadside tree and forest management. In our roadside forests, trees provide aesthetic and environmental benefits, but can also threaten power infrastructure. I am exploring the value trade-offs
that people must make between preserving forests and having reliable power supply.
