Impact of biopower generation on eastern US forests

18 March 2022

This study assessed associations between biopower generation, and selected timberland structure indicators and carbon stocks across 438 areas surrounding wood-using and coal-burning power plants in the Eastern US from 2005 to 2017.


Environmental and socio-economic implications of woody biomass co-firing at coal-fired power plants

18 February 2022

In this study, we apply a detailed power sector model to explore the near-term role of woody biomass co-firing at existing coal facilities in the Eastern US in the decarbonization of US electricity generation.


A Python API for accessing Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) database in parallel

10 June 2021

The Python API uses the JSON query system to collect large data from FIADB in parallel. It uses EVALIDator to access FIADB, but it can handle large number of queries at a time.


Impact of increased biomass electricity generation on forest health

08 November 2020

My presentation about impact of biopower generation of forestlands at INFORMS 2020.


29 October 2020

In this research, we assessed variability in fundamental attributes for timberland structure and carbon stocks within 123 procurement landscapes of wood pellet mills derived from over 38 thousand forest inventory plots in the eastern US from 2005 to 2017.


Create and manage virtual machines with Vagrant

25 October 2020

Vagrant is a tool for building and managing virtual machine environments in a single workflow. With an easy-to-use workflow and focus on automation, Vagrant lowers development environment setup time, increases production parity, and provides an end-to-end VM management tool on your terminal.
