Alaska Research Office - Fairbanks

865-576-2370 9th Street, Building 4070 Fort Wainwright Alaska 99703 United States Research Physical Scientist

Research interests include terrain suitability for permafrost degradation (including thermokarst) processes, regional-scale changes in permafrost- related ecological processes and land cover, and linking permafrost cryostructure and ground ice distribution with surficial geology, geomorphology, and vegetation. Impacts to ecology and infrastructure are considered. These topics are examined using spatial analysis, typically scaling results from local to regional scales using remote sensing, GIS, and spatial statistics.
