Hi! I'm a research associate at the Stamford Museum. I primarily focus on the fauna of the Cretaceous landmass Appalachia. I'm especially interested in comparing the vertebrate faunas of Appalachia with those of Western North America (Laramidia) in order to understand the differences between western and eastern faunas and to find out what drove these differences.
