Justin Braaten

PhD student

My interests are in forest disturbance. I am particularly interested in application and development of tools and technology for mapping and monitoring disturbance at a range of scales from plot to landscape with the goal of identifying spatial and temporal patterns and their drivers, as well as the effect on forest structure. At the lab my work involves development of methods and custom programs to automate image processing for the purpose of constructing long/dense image time series stacks and analysis of image data in the context of change. Outside of work I enjoy playing guitar, trout fishing, and exploring the northwest’s forests, mountains, and waterways.
