San Jose State University is now home to the largest academic Wildfire Interdisciplinary
Research Center in the United States. SJSU’s program is an interdisciplinary collaboration
between the Colleges of Science, Social Sciences, Engineering. The Center’s staff is directed by
Dr. Craig Clements, whose studies range from fire ecology, fire and fluid dynamics, wildfire
behavior modeling and meteorology, to remote sensing, management and policy.
Presenting will be Dr. Kate Wilkin, assistant professor at the Center and a fire ecologist who is
studying the Loma Fire and who specializes in defensible space and WUI. Dr. Wilkin has nearly
20 years of experience in natural resource management, outreach and research. Her research
focuses on living sustainably in fire-prone ecosystems, wildfire recovery of communities and
natural lands, prescribed fire on private lands, wildfire mitigation, fire-resistant homes,
defensible space, and fuel treatments. She also has expertise in monitoring wildfire behavior
thru remote sensing technologies.
Also presenting will be Amanda Stasiewicz, assistant professor of Wildfire Management,
whose research focuses on the human dimensions of wildfire, community adaptation to
wildfire risk in the WUI, and citizen-agency conflict and cooperation.
So join us for this extraordinary presentation and benefit from the latest findings on wildfire
behavior. Get answers to your questions about wildfire from experts in the field.
