Graduation Year: 

My research interest are wide ranging but are generally focused in ecology. I am currently working with Dr. Ken Fulgham on project analyzing the long-term, post-fire vegetation dynamics of a sagebrush steppe community. My thesis is the synthesis of nearly thirty years of vegetation monitoring conducted on the Modoc National Forest in Northeastern California. In addition to traditional field based ecological work, I am also interested in interdisciplinary research approaches using remote sensing and GIS techniques. I have worked in the environmental consulting field for the last several years doing everything from water quality monitoring to preparing regulatory permits and disclosures. I received my Bachelors of Science in Environmental Systems: Ecology, Behavior and Evolution from UC San Diego in 2005. Sara Hanna graduated in 2012 and currently teaches Introduction to Remote Sensing at Cal Poly Humboldt.
