Bio
I was born and raised in the United Kingdom. I am very grateful that I experienced three continents growing up - Africa, Europe and North America. Providing evidence-based investigations to help monitor, evaluate and design effective forestry and natural resources-based sustainable supply chains is key to my background and experience. I seek to interrogate the linkages between sustainability and natural resources operations, equipment, supply chains and management, bearing in mind ecosystem values and utilization strategies. As a result, I have built and maintained a nationally and internationally recognized program that addresses ecosystem services protection questions, operating equipment in environmentally sensitive areas, cost and life cycle assessments, environmental risk assessment, and the forest workforce education, health and safety. I use multiple quantitative and qualitative data collection and research methods to help design programs and objectives, characterize criteria and attributes and evaluate the human landscape impacts at different scales. I serve as a technical expert on World Bank, NSF, USDA and Department of Energy panels. I have received several fellowships, including the USDA Cochran Fellowship, and AAAS Science, Technology and Policy Executive Branch Fellowship (2018) and served as an Executive board member of the Forest Products Society and currently serve as an officeholder for IUFRO (International Union of Forest Research Organisations) in forest operations.
