New Mexico State University is hoping the work of a new faculty member will help them better understand wildfires in the state.

Doug Cram has been named the wildland fire management specialist.  He’s in charge of developing programs that looks into all aspects of wildfires.

Cram, a native of Los Alamos, previously served as the wildland fire specialist in Hawaii and studied fire ecology in the Southwest at NMSU.

NMSU is one of only two land-grant universities in the country to create this type of position.
