I'm broadly interested in the evolution and paleoecology of therian (placental and marsupial) mammals. My current research focuses on the dietary ecomorphologies of Late Cretaceous North American metatherians (Metatheria is the stem-based clade that includes extant marsupials and their closest relatives), the patterns of ecological expansion of these mammals, and what those patterns indicate about their evolutionary history.
From a small beach town in New Jersey. Received my undergraduate degree in Geology and Environmental Geosciences from Lafayette College. Received my MS degree from Marshall University, where I studied dire wolf evolution. Enjoy camping, swimming, hiking, exploring the music of Seattle, and cross-stitching.
