White, tan-green, and maroon siltstones, sandstones, and mudstones of the Cretaceous Cloverly Formation at Devil's Kitchen, Wyoming, USA
M.S. Student
Graduate Teaching Assistant


I'm originally from Muncie, Indiana. My research areas are stratigraphy and paleontology, and I'm generally interested in how the sedimentary rock record influences our interpretations of paleoecology. I'm also passionate about incorporating social science into geoscience research to foster connections with museum audiences. My thesis is on the sequence stratigraphy of the Cretaceous Cloverly Formation and its effects on the record of nonmarine vertebrate fossils.

Outside the lab and the field, I love backpacking, triathlon, and collecting National Park pins!
