Since childhood, I have always been fascinated with geology and paleontology, particularly dinosaurs, and it stuck with me. I have been fortunate enough to participate in numerous paleontological as well as geological field expeditions, and have been involved some very exciting research projects within these fields. I have a very broad scope of interests when it comes to carrying out research, but I always try to place the topic into context with bigger picture questions. Research interests include (but certainly not limited to), sedimentology, stratigraphy, geochronology, (vertebrate) paleontology and taphonomy, cladistics and phylogenetics, vertebrate evolution (particularly tetrapods that demonstrate transitions that steer away from marine ecosystems into inhabiting a semi- to permanent terrestrial lifestyle), archosaur evolution, and functional morphology of extinct terrestrial vertebrates.
MSc. 2015. - The Evolution and Biogeography of Ankylosaurid Dinosaurs from the Late Cretaceous of Western North America. BSc. 2011. - Taphonomy of a Subadult Tyrannosaur Teratophoneus curriei from the Upper Campanian Kaiparowits Formation of Southern Utah.
