Montana State University
Research/Scholarly Work: 
My research seeks to understand Holocene climate-fire-vegetation linkages in the temperate forests of western South America. Pollen and charcoal preserved in lake and wetland sediments are the main proxies that I use to reconstruct vegetation and fire regimes. My work will contribute to resolving questions concerning the regional fire history, vegetation dynamics and the response of regional environments to global climate change.
