Co-leader of the Center for Integrated Forest Science – a pioneering research partnership between the Forest Service Southern Research Station and North Carolina State University, which addresses complex questions that require science to inform natural resource management and policy decisions. Most of these questions require understanding biophysical AND human dimensions and fusing science from the natural and social sciences.
