About Me


I am a vertebrate paleontologist interested in taphonomy, paleoecology, and functional morphology. My primary research lies in reconstructing the ecology of extinct vertebrates and using this information to better understand the structure, function, and evolution of ancient ecosystems.

I am the principal investigator at the Arlington Archosaur Site with a position of Research Affiliate in the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas.

Currently I am an Associate Professor in Biological Sciences teaching human anatomy and physiology at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside.
