Hailey is a PhD student in Forestry and a Masters student in Applied Economics. She is working on questions of fire management and harvesting policies, and how they interact in the long term. Most of this is being done in large-scale computer simulations. Hailey's background is in plant ecology, biology, and computer science, and she is eager to leverage these fields as tools in forest and natural resource policy analysis.
Hailey is an active member with the College's Graduate Student Council, Forest GUMP mentorship program, IFSA, and as a member of several other committees and panels across the university. Her personal interests include writing, hiking, game programming, strategy, and most importantly, her family. She is married and has two daughters and one son, ages seven, five, and one.
