Personal profile

Research interests

My research areas include climate science, water resource issues, environmental dynamics and natural areas conservation. I specialize in tree-ring research, including data development, interpretation, and application in the environmental sciences. My current projects are focused in California, Guatemala, and the upper Midwest.
