Forestry - Computer Science


I am a graduate student at Michigan State University seeking Master's degrees in Forestry and Computer Science. My advisor is Dr. Andrew Finley of the Forestry Department. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee where I received a BS in Mathematics and minored in Computer Science.

As a researcher and student, I am especially interested in the intersections of various STEM fields, particularly the application of Operations Research in ecological problems. Currently, I am working on creating data processing and classification programs in R and C++.
