Views from the canopy and other high places.

My work has taken me across four continents. Here are images from some of the places I have worked and hiked.

I study sugar maple reproduction and run the sugar shack at Harvard Forest in Petersham, MA.

New England
I live in western Massachusetts and spend my free time exploring the beautiful landscapes of the region. Cape Cod, where my wife Molly grew up, is a favorite destination.

The Range of Light
In October 2012, the Andes Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research Group (ABERG) held its annual meeting in Sequoia National Park in California. Afterwards I walked from the groves of Giant Sequoias to the summit of Mount Whitney and down into the Owens Valley.

Northern Rockies
The summers of 2011 and 2012 found me doing fieldwork for studies of whitebark pine masting and mortality in western Montana and adjacent Idaho.

I spent August and September 2011 in northern Finland, helping with plant demography studies in Oulanka National Park.

Costa Rica
A workshop on embedded sensor networks in the tropics took me to the La Selva Biological Station for two weeks in August 2010. I also spent a week in the Monteverde cloud forest.

I have visited India three times. My trip in October 2009 to Bangalore was to attend the International Canopy Conference.

New Mexico
After the Ecological Society of America meeting in Albuquerque in August 2009, I took a few days to hike from east to west across the Pecos Wilderness. It is a landscape I knew well as a summer intern with the Student Conservation Association in college, when I had the job of mapping the trails of the region (on foot).

The 2008 ABERG meeting was held in Bettmeralp, Switzerland near the Aletsch Glacier, the longest in Europe.

For several years I traveled to Peru each year to do field research in the cloud forests of the eastern Andes. Here are photos from trips in 2007 and 2009.
