Areas of Expertise


My current research examines the changing landscape of New England and the potential impact on climate change and human interaction with the landscape that results from this process. I employ Geospatial Technologies such as geographic information systems, remote sensing and GPS technology to examine our environment and human influence on the environment. An ongoing project is to examine changes in the forests of Central Massachusetts using The continuous evolution of human interactions with the environment in terms of resource use, regulation, recreation and changing viewpoints on all these processes provide a wealth of possible study. I strive to provide students with knowledge and skills needed to examine these issues as well as encouraging them to think creatively about problem solving and their role in our future world.
