I am a vertebrate paleontologist interested in the Permo-Triassic diversification of synapsids and other tetrapods. I received my PhD from the University of Washington in 2013. My current research focuses on the role that the end-Permian mass extinction played in shaping growth patterns and physiology (activity metabolism) in two major groups of terrestrial vertebrates: the therapsid forerunners of mammals and archosauromorphs (a group that includes crocodilians, non-avian dinosaurs, and birds).
