I am interested in the factors that drive changes in growth and bone histology through evolutionary time, as well as the evolution of amniote development and morphology. I am also interested in the evolution of bone tissues and the factors that control variability in osteohistology at the individual/ontogenetic, species, population, and clade levels. I am interested in combining paleontological, developmental, histological, and genetic data in my research in order to understand these questions from multiple perspectives.

In my free time, I watch Chicago Bears football and reminisce about when the Chicago Blackhawks used to be competitive.

Please see my CV or email me at for more details.
