Tyler is a citizen of Mi’kmaq Nation. His research prioritizes methodologies that result in Tribal led science. He is a PhD student in the School of Forest Resources here at the University of Maine and his current research focuses on the impacts of emerald ash borer (EAB) on Tribal ash resources and identifying innovative management and mitigation strategies for this forest health issue that Tribal Nation partners support and have interest in better understanding. This includes developing a Tribal supported integrated pest management strategy for EAB; one that considers silviculture and other adaptive management strategies, climate change, and most importantly Tribal cultural values. In general Tyler’s research interests focus on forest entomology, forest ecology, and silviculture.
