R. Stockton Maxwell is an assistant professor of Geospatial Science at Radford University. He earned a Master of Forestry (2006) and Doctorate (2010) of Geography from West Virginia University. Most recently, Dr. Maxwell worked at The Pennsylvania State University as a postdoctoral scholar in the Vegetation Dynamics Laboratory housed in the Department of Geography. His research interests are focused on vegetation dynamics, disturbance history, and modeling with an emphasis on dendrochronology (tree-ring analysis). Dr. Maxwell has conducted research from Virginia to Maine, California, Nevada, and even, Mongolia.
Recently, Dr. Maxwell recieved a grant from the College of Science and Technology to establish a tree-ring laboratory at Radford University. Dr. Maxwell is always looking for promising geospatial science students for fieldwork/laboratory internships and honor’s theses. If you are a student interested in these opportunities, please contact Dr. Maxwell.
