Research Associate, San Diego Natural History Museum
"My interest in Vertebrate Paleontology stems from a desire to understand as much about the world as possible by understanding its past. This depth of history was the essential draw that brought me to geology and, through the study of evolution, to biology. I currently learn about life of the past using anatomy, phylogeny, bone histology, egg microstructure, and taphonomy. These tools allow me to start teasing apart the threads of development and evolution that underlie small feathered-dinosaur growth, pterosaur biogeography, the faunal composition of the Badlands, and the reproduction of Chinese dinosaurs."
