Meet George Jensen, New Graduate Student Researching Fire at the Jones Center

George Jensen is a first year graduate student working with Dr. Ben Knapp at University of Missouri and Dr. Seth Bigelow at the Jones Center at Ichauway. He will conduct research on the influence of Resistance, Resilience, and Transition treatments on fire behavior and effects in longleaf pine ecosystems. George previously worked as a Conservation Biologist for the Endangered Resources section of the Wisconsin DNR and as a wildland firefighter out west. George loves learning about how ecosystems are developed, and working with the public to better educate on matters of wildfire, prairie establishment, and pollinator ecology. 

Welcome, George, to the ASCC Network!
