I am interested in the application of regional climate models to predict consequences of anthropogenic impacts on watershed landscapes. My special concern to date has focused on Amazonia, and in particular on the likelihood that development here will force a widespread conversion of tropical moist forest to fire-adapted scrub. I am a social scientist, an economic geographer to be exact. Thus, within this broad agenda, I also conduct research on the economic forces that bring about the environmental changes.
