My research interests include investigating how dramatic changes in climate affects evolution of species at the population, species, and community level. I am particularly interested in understanding trends and drivers of morphological or compositional change.

I am currently a Peter Buck Fellow Postdoctoral Researcher at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History in the Department of Paleobiology. With the advisement of Dr. Matthew Carrano and Dr. S. Kathleen Lyons, I plan to assess changes in community composition in systems dominated by mega-fauna (large animals).

I completed my Ph.D. working with Dr. Felisa Smith in the Department of Biology at UNM. The Smith Lab is interested in all things body size: what ecological, evolutionary, and environmental forces influence body size.
