Matthew Perkowski Senior Forester

Matthew Perkowski is a Senior Forester, Biometrician and Lead Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Validator/Verifier for Aster Global Environmental Solutions with over 15 years experience. His responsibilities include meeting the internal and external client objectives in the fields of forest inventory and sampling, growth and yield modeling, and directly in support of offset validation/verification projects. In addition, he focuses on streamlining and developing quantitative tools as part of ongoing continuous improvement efforts. This latter focus assures increasing product and service value for clients.

Previously, Mr. Perkowski worked in timber market and forestry supply chain analysis. He incorporated his academic background experience in forest biometrics, growth and yield modeling, and related matters to various projects throughout that period. Additionally, Mr. Perkowski spent considerable time developing software routines to automate the collation and analysis of millions of transactional data records to ensure statistical accuracy and expedience.

Mr. Perkowski is a professional member of The Society of American Foresters (SAF) and is a Certified Forester within this organization. He is also a Certified Project Specialist for the U.S. Forestry and Urban Forestry Protocols of the Californian Air Resource Board.
