Settling into Colorado, with work spanning the continent

I apologize for the lack of updates, it was a long field season this summer (very successful!) and a busy few months setting up the new lab.  New equipment, like a Costech 8020 Elemental Analyzer, are on the way, and we'll be set for dendro, cellular structure (wood ID), charcoal, and carbon, and high performance geospatial analysis within the month!  

The lab is designed around the idea of scaling from field to landscapes and beyond, a key need in this era of rapid, broad scale changes in climate and disturbance regime.

I am recruiting multiple PhD students. I am especially interested in folks curious about plant community change, fires, and snow loss induced mortality.  So if you are interested in how ecosystems respond to climate change and disasters, and both (!), let me know.
