I am interested in interdisciplinary research that examines people, ecosystems and their interactions. My research topics include human dimensions of subsistence and sport harvest, land use, ecosystem management, ecosystem services, climate change, and wildfire. I use geographic information systems (GIS), statistics, modeling, and other qualitative and quantitative methods. I enjoy combining social, economic, and biological data to examine how people use and value ecosystem services. Much of my research has dealt with moose and moose hunting in Alaska. But also I am the lead Alaska researcher for an international project called TUNDRA (http://site.uit.no/tundra/) which examines how socio-economic conditions and governance influence land use and harvest by communities in the Arctic.

Programs:


Deheaping software - a program to deal with rounding (i.e. heaping) bias in self-reported survey data. This program helps to assess and correct for biases in metrics such as number of days hunted, number of fish/game harvested, number of visits to parks, etc.
