I am an Associate Professor and the David R.M. Scott Endowed Professor in Forest Resources in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at the University of Washington. My primary research interests include the ecology of biological invasions, the spatial and temporal dynamics of insect populations, and the role of climate change on insect population dynamics.

I also serve as the Graduate Prog
ram Coordinator for the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, and I am the Coordinator for the Pe ace Corps Masters International Forestry Program (PCMI) at the University of Washington. Although the Peace Corps discontinued the PCMI in 2016, several students are still completing their assignments. Click here to learn more about the current and previous students in this Program.
