Marcus, PhD.

Marcus is an ecologist and lead modeller at Beckingham with a focus on ecological interpretive and predictive modelling, data management and processing frameworks, statistical analysis, and application development. Marcus has 15 years of diverse applied ecology work experience in China, Europe, and central Canada with strong expertise in designing and utilizing models to evaluate and facilitate forest management, environmental site assessment, and predictive carbon sequestration.
At Beckingham, Marcus is the primary developer of the LogixTM model suite, which applies biogeoclimatic ecosystem classification theory to collected environmental data and creates integrative models that address multiple environmental factors and predictive ecosystem trends. In the development of the models, Marcus adapts new data and technologies to existing classification paradigms and creates new data management and classification strategies. In addition, Marcus has been involved in various other modelling projects including forest management unit modelling and data processing in northern Alberta, ecosystem and habitat modelling in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and environmental impact assessments of multiple oil and gas developments at numerous locations. Furthermore, Marcus has contributed to numerous environmental projects ranging from Phase I, II, and III environmental site assessments, groundwater and soil quality investigation and assessments, hydrological data interpretation, and time series data analysis.
Marcus has a Ph.D. and a Master of Science in Forestry from the University of Goettingen, Goettingen, Germany. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Forestry from the Northwest Agriculture and Forest University, Yangling, China.
