I am a vertebrate paleontologist and clastic sedimentologist and stratigrapher. My research focus is using the ecology of extinct organisms as Earth surface proxies to help interpret paleotectonics and paleogeography of western North America. I currently have projects spanning from the Antler orogeny through the early Holocene. In addition to my research, I am very active in informal science education via my affiliation with regional museums.
