Get to know me

I am a doctoral candidate in the Earth Sciences Department at the University of California, Riverside. I study invertebrate paleontology with special attention to Cambrian and Ordovician trilobites under the mentorship of Professor Nigel Hughes. We are using the Cambrian and early Ordovician trilobites of Sibumasu (modern day western Thailand, eastern Myanmar, northern Malaysia, and western Yunnan, China) to reconstruct the paleogeography of the marginal terranes of northern Gondwana and to calibrate the late Furongian geologic time scale. This project is foundational to the UNESCO-affiliated IGCP 668 project in which we are deeply involved. 

My B.S. and M.S. are both in geology from the University of Oklahoma.
