Fire Science Research Highlights
Travis Paveglio, an assistant professor in the Department of Natural Resources and Society, served as a panelist at the National Academy of Science’s “A Century of Wildland Fire Research” workshop on March 27 in Washington, D.C. Paveglio was part of the “Living with Fire: State of the Science around Fire-Adapted Communities” panel, along with representatives of the University of Saskatchewan, Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, and the U.S. Forest Service.
Paveglio leads the social science side of a $2.8 million, UI-led National Science Foundation grant to help Northwest communities prepare for and become more resilient to wildfire. His research aims to make fire management strategies adaptable to fit individual communities.
