Emilie's research interests include modeling broad-scale patterns in plant communities, as they relate to environmental gradients, and disturbance history. These research interests apply practically to building species distribution models, predictive vegetation maps, and also state-and-transition simulation modeling studies. The maps and the simulation modeling results are targeted to provide useful information to natural resources and conservation planning. Before coming to INR, Emilie was a postdoctoral researcher with the Landscape Ecology, Modeling, Mapping and Analysis team in OSU's Department of Forest Ecosystems and Society.
