ABOUT US Our Team

SEAN JERONIMO, PhD

Principal Ecologist SEAN JERONIMO, PhD

Sean is a forester, forest scientist, and small woodland owner. From the region-wide analysis of fire regimes in California’s Sierra Nevada to managing treatment implementation for a vertically-integrated forest restoration company in Northern Arizona, Sean brings to Resilient Forestry a breadth of knowledge and experience. His bread and butter is multi-scale ecological forest management planning in his home, the Pacific Northwest. Sean earned his PhD in forest ecology from the University of Washington.

BRYAN FUENTES, MS

Analytical Ecologist BRYAN FUENTES, MS

Bryan loves the mountains, especially those covered in lush, green forest and dissected by dendritic streams. His daily efforts involve scaling landscape dynamics data to the spatiotemporal domain through statistical modeling and geoinformatics. The main outputs of Bryan’s activities are computational frameworks and tools for the user-informed, data-driven modeling of environmental phenomena. He holds a BS in forest science and a MS in soil science, which allow him to take a holistic approach to understand processes occurring at the soil-plant-atmosphere interface.

SAM THARPGEORGE

Field Ecologist SAM THARPGEORGE

After completing his studies in Natural Resource Science at Northland College in Ashland, WI, Sam decided to make the move to the Pacific Northwest.
