Graham Frank

Graham is a forest ecologist based in Corvallis. Originally from the Portland area, Graham has a bachelor’s degree in biology from Colorado College and a master’s degree in forest biology from Purdue University. Graham is currently a PhD candidate at Oregon State University, studying how disturbance and management influence biodiversity in early seral forest ecosystems. Though he specializes in forests, Graham appreciates ecosystems of all kinds and is curious to know what your favorite plant is, and why. He is interested in research that informs management decisions, and in working to reduce barriers for students and practitioners to make the field of ecology more accessible. In his free time, Graham enjoys familiarizing himself with Oregon’s landscapes by dabbling in many different human-powered activities.
