- Oregon State University PI for the multi-institution Pacific Northwest Regional Collaboratory, leading the development of web-based application architecture and software for delivering geospatial and remote-sensing based decision support tools for natural resource management and decisionmaking.
- CoPI of a multidisciplinary NSF Biocomplexity project studying the interactions of riparian policy evolution, land use, and riparian function in several Willamette basin watersheds. This effort, initiated Fall 2001, uses spatially explicit analysis with a multiobjective decisionmaking core and an agent-based simulation approach to evolve policy/pattern constructs to explore development of effective strategies for managing riparian areas under conditions of ecological and social function scarcity.
- PI of a highly multidisciplinary EPA-funded project “Developing Methods and Tools for Restoration Decisionmaking: Design, Implementation and Assessment in the Willamette Basin.” This project integrates ecological, economic, and social scientists with information engineers and stakeholder groups to address the complexities of watershed restoration decisionmaking under constraints via spatially explicit multiobjective optimization.
- PI of an EPA project developing a range of software tools for simulation analysis, inferencing, and spatial analysis. These tools implement state of the art, computationally efficient analysis methodologies applicable to the analysis of complex systems, as well as associated visualization and data mining codes.
- Involved in a highly multidisciplinary project collectively referred to as the Pacific Northwest Ecosystems Research Consortium, focused on applying multidisciplinary perspectives on watershed processes, data synthesis and landscape evolution modeling to alternative futures analysis in the Willamette basin, Oregon.
