Graduate student Spotlight

Jordan Claytor
Research direction: To understand the biotic recovery of mammals following the Cretaceous-Paleogene mass extinction

My research interests focus on the evolution and ecology of early mammals using morphology independent methods to infer diet.


Outside interests: Outside of research I spend my time hiking, skiing, reading non research related books and embroidering.

My outreach activities include: DIG Field School, Burke Museum events


Hayden Davis
Research direction: I'm interested in the speciation process with a focus on the processes that drive reproductive isolation

I'm interested in addressing the process of speciation and the factors that lead to it, particularly for lineages that have recently diverged but have not experienced an ecological shift. Similarly, investigating species delimitation practices and species concepts is a driving factor of my research.
