My research incorporates study of the skeletal and dental anatomy of fossil mammals, as well as their stratigraphic and systematic relationships in the geological record. I am interested in understanding the role of climate change during the early Cenozoic Era, particularly the impact of climate change on terrestrial mammals living at that time. My fieldwork is conducted primarily in the early Cenozoic depositional basins of Utah, Colorado and Wyoming.
