About Me

I am a vertebrate paleontologist with a specialty in herpetology. I focus primarily on the factors that shape variation in the vertebrate skeleton, particularly the evolution of development and its interplay with other constraints, such as phylogeny. Much of my research centers on Carboniferous and Permian early tetrapods, but I also study Quaternary amphibians and squamates, and the skeletal morphology of extant burrowing snakes. At SUNY Oswego I co-supervise a large student-driven research project that tracks emergent amphibian diseases in Central New York.
