Robin Verble is an assistant professor of fire ecology in the Department of Natural Resources Management in the College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources. Her research interests include:
- effects of prescribed fire on forest and prairie insect communities
- factors influencing plant flammability and combustibility
- historical fire regimes and characteristics
Verble plans to continue her research on insect thermal physiology, Ozark fire history and the effects of fire on insect communities. At Texas Tech, she plans to develop a competitive fire ecology and management program.
Verble received her B.S. in biophysics from the University of Southern Indiana in 2006 and her M.S. in forest entomology from the University of Arkansas in 2008. She completed her Ph.D. in applied bioscience from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. She is a member of the Association for Fire Ecology and the Entomological Society of America.
