Faculty in Forest Products

This list represents faculty who are available to advise and/or serve on committees. Not every individual on this list is in a position to advise students, so prospective students should plan to reach out to the program or the faculty member to inquire if they are unsure. 

Current students looking solely for someone to serve on a committee should consult the faculty role list database, organized by the MS and PhD programs.
