Damon Hartley, Ph.D.

Research Staff

Research Areas:
Bioenergy Analysis; Bioenergy Technologies

Biography:
Dr. Damon Hartley works in Idaho National Laboratory’s Biofuels and Renewable Energy Technology department. He most recently comes from Morgantown, WV, having completed a Ph.D. in forest resources science at West Virginia University. The topic of his dissertation research was Modeling and Optimization of Woody Biomass Supply Chains in the Northeastern United States. Prior to entering the doctorate program, Damon worked from 2005 to 2010 as an extension specialist in timber harvesting at the Ohio State University and a watershed forester for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, in 2004 and 2005. He has a master’s in forest products-timber harvesting from the University of Idaho (2003) and a bachelor’s in wood science-forest utilization from West Virginia University (2001).
