Christopher Dunn spent eight years in fire suppression and fuels management prior to pursuing research on fire effects and ecosystem response to mixed severity fires. Now he leverages his operational experience and research training to bridge the gap between science and management to better prepare land and fire managers for the changing fire environment. Dunn earned his B.S. in forest management from Colorado State University and M.S. and Ph.D. in forest resources from Oregon State University. His research now focuses on the safety and effectiveness of large fire management, supported by collaborations with the Human Dimensions Program at the Rocky Mountain Research Station.
Christopher Dunn will be speaking in ACT I: Wildfire Moneyball: Analytics for the New Normal
