Research:

My research focus is primate/hominin phylogeny and taxonomy and I have used teeth, specifically the incremental features found in the microstructure of teeth, to look at evolutionary relationships. My current research is working with the fossil primate Cantius found during the Eocene epoch (55 – 34 Ma) and its role in the paleocommunity found in the Great Divide Basin of Southern Wyoming.
