I am a vertebrate paleontologist interested in the evolution of jaw mechanics in herbivorous dinosaurs. My research involves the examination of dental microwear in pachycephalosaurs and ceratopsians as a primary indicator of mandibular action during mastication. I am an assistant professor of biology at King's College in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. There I teach a variety of courses including Anatomy and Physiology, Evolution and Diversity, Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, Earth Science, Physical Geology and a Dinosaurs course for non-majors.
