Research Interest

I am mainly concerned with where to put the firefighting resources during a wildland fire. To know this, we have to understand more about wildand fire behavior and wildland fire atmospheric interactions.

My thesis topic is an analysis of the fire behavior during a slope fire experiment at Fort Hunter Liggett conducted during the summer of 2012.
