Ph.D. - Wood Physics, University of Minnesota. 1989.
Areas of Interest
My research has been in the area of wood moisture relationships. This has included dimensional changes in wood due to changes in temperature in timber bridges as well as biodeterioration of wood in flooded homes. Another research interest has been the evaluation of the energy performance of recently constructed homes in Minnesota.
