Research Interests:
My research looks at vegetation succession in retreating glacier forelands in the Central Brooks rang north to the Sagavinirktok river from very recent deglaciation (40 years) along a chronosequence over 150,000 years in Alaska's Arctic. My study focuses on the players forming pioneer communities and patterns seen during the earliest stages of succession that carry through to mature stands of vegetation on varying habitat types and environments. I am also using lichenometry and a previously established lichenometric curve for the area to estimate surface ages and to test the applicability of lichenometry to very young surfaces.
