After earlier careers in soil survey, consulting, and forest soils research, I joined UNBC in 2002. I am still involved in several of the long-term forestry research projects that I helped to establish during my eleven years with the BC Ministry of Forests and Range. At UNBC, my research now emphasizes soil genesis and the role of soils as a recorder of long-term environmental change in northwestern Canada. With collaborators at UNBC and other universities, and at federal and territorial agencies, I'm working on research projects at sites in the Yukon and Northwest Territories, and in northern British Columbia.
