Jonathan Thompson is a Senior Ecologist at the Harvard Forest. He is a forest landscape ecologist who studies long-term and broad-scale changes in forest ecosystems, with an emphasis on quantifying how land use - including harvest, conversion, and conservation - affects forest services and processes. Occasionally he’ll sneak out and collect data in the field, but more often he relies on simulation models, remote sensing, and large databases to understand landscape dynamics. Thompson came to Harvard Forest in November, 2013 after spending five years with a dual appointment as a Research Ecologist at the Smithsonian Institution and Research Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia. He received a PhD in Forest Ecology and an MS in Forest Policy from Oregon State University.
