Hi there! I’m a vertebrate paleontologist interested in the growth, diversity, and ecology of both extinct theropod dinosaurs and their modern relatives – birds! For a quick overview of what I’m working on at the moment, check out the Research tab.

While I don’t blog much on this site (yet), you can read a bit more about my work in this guest blog post I wrote for the Seattle, Washington Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture while visiting their vertebrate paleontology collections in 2017.
