Kristen Waring, Ph.D. - Associate Professor
My research program focuses on silviculture and applied forest health, including stand dynamics and introduced species. Questions addressing post-disturbance stand response, such as tree regeneration and species composition, have been key components of my research.
Introductions of forest pests into new environments is not likely to stop, or even slow, in coming years. Research into ecological effects of these pests is integral to management and restoration of affected ecosystems, and is potentially valuable in preventative measures as well. I am interested in how forest ecosystems respond to new pests, and in the development of innovative management strategies used in restoration of affected ecosystems.
