Education

  • Washington State University, Ph. D. Engineering Science Wildland Fire-Atmosphere interactions , 2013
  • Pacific University, B.S. Physics Physics: low-dimensional chaos in turbulent systems , 2002

Professional Experience

  • Postdoctoral Research Assistant, University of Washington 2017 - 2018 Characterize the near-surface and near-plant boundary layer response to diurnal variability as well as low-intensity fire passage. Continue investigations into techniques for using acoustics to quantify characteristics of wildland fires and the fire environment.
  • Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Idaho 2013 - 2017 Wildland fire behavior research in two focus areas: 1. Combustion-lab approach to assessing the response of live vegetation to low-intensity surface fire passage. 2. Development of passive acoustic sampling techniques of wildland fire.
