About Alex

In a decade of wildland firefighting, I have seen the impact that past fire management strategies have had on land in the Western United States. I have recognized lands must be managed with wildfire as an active phenomenon, not as a disaster to be mitigated. My graduate work will prepare me to apply scientific problem solving to wildland management.
