Current Research

My research project will be examining the body size distribution of amniotes through geologic time. Specifically, it will focus on (1) how the body size distributions have varied for different major amniote groups (i.e. dinosaurs, synapsids, mammals, etc.) and what the drivers of the distribution shape are with regards to both phylogeny and ecology, and (2) how species diversity in different body size bins for major amniote groups has changed through geologic time.
