Kevin brings more than 10 years of experience using quantitative methods to support
data-driven, integrated resource management, planning and assessment. He excels in
developing tools that reduce complex processes to easy-to-use and easy-to-understand
systems for decision-makers.
Responsibilities: At Cramer Fish Sciences, Kevin's focus is on analysis
nd modeling of forest ecosystems to help stakeholders understand the influence management
activities can have on terrestrial and aquatic habitat—and ultimately their influence on
salmon and trout. He combines doctoral-level understanding of ecosystem processes with
expert tool-building skills to lead the development of integrated mathematical simulation
Projects/Services: Kevin offers expertise in numerous areas—growth,
development and management of forest stands; ecosystem data compilation and analysis;
forest and population simulation model development and use; ecosystem assessment model
development and use; spatial analysis and cartography; and software development to create
Prior to joining Cramer, Kevin was involved in many projects to evaluate the effects of
forest growth and management on ecosystem outputs. Kevin provided simulations for numerous
assessment projects in Washington and Oregon, evaluating everything from harvest volume and
carbon sequestration to fire risk and wildlife habitat.
Background: Kevin received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in forest management
and silviculture from the University of Washington where he is currently a doctoral candidate
in forest biometrics. He has worked for several research cooperatives to develop mathematical
simulation models addressing growth and yield of young managed forests, wildlife habitat
management, and wildfire risk assessment.
Personal: A lifelong Northwesterner, Kevin enjoys hiking and skiing the
mountains and boating and fishing the Salish Sea. His other hobbies include biking, woodworking,
cooking, and brewing beer.
