It gives me great pleasure to announce that Dr. Ernesto Alvarado will join us as Research Associate Professor in Wildland Fire Science on July 1, 2009. Dr. Alvarado will conduct research related to wildland fire science topics and teach two courses per year in the same general area. In addition, Ernesto wishes to help us address diversity issues by recruiting Hispanic students into the College. His appointment awaits formal approval by the UW Regents.
