About Maureen Kennedy

Maureen is an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington, School of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, Division of Sciences and Mathematics, Tacoma, WA. She is affiliated with the Fire and Environmental Research Applications (FERA) team at the USFS Pacific Wildland Fire Sciences Laboratory in Seattle.

Maureen's main research interest is to develop innovative tools that improve the role of ecological models in theory development and environmental decision-making. A current focus is the coupling of a fire spread model that she developed (WMFire) with a hydroecological model (RHESSys), housed in the Bren School of Envrionmental Science and Management at UC Santa Barbara.

Maureen is also adapting advanced spatially explicit statistical modeling to better understand stand and lansdcape-level patterns of wildfire and fuel-treatment interactions.
Maureen seeks every opportunity to participate in the education of science students and early-career scientists in the practice of quantitative scientific methods. She has developed courses in environmental modeling, introductory and advanced statistics, and model assessment. She currently teaches such courses at the University of Washington, Tacoma.
