About

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with Jack Williams. We are working on the PalEON Project (www.paleonproject.org), an interdisciplinary research effort that develops the relationships between fossil pollen assemblages and pre-settlement patterns of vegetation in the northeastern United States. The development of Bayesian statistical tools to detect relationships between pollen, vegetation and paleoclimatic proxies will serve to improve the hindcast performance of dynamic vegetation models and provide guidance to model improvement for future predictions. I completed my Ph.D in the Paleoecology lab of Dr. Rolf Mathewes at Simon Fraser University. Where my interests focused on our ability to reconstruct climate using modern pollen analogues. How do numerical models operate in regions with significant anthropogenic disturbance? What causes differences between model outputs? How do we select the best suite of analogues?
