Research Assistant

I am from McHenry, Illinois and I have loved learning about geology from a young age. For the past 6 summers I have been a teaching assistant for biology, geology, and paleontology field camps for youth groups with the Sternberg Museum of Natural History. My experiences with teaching and doing field work have led me to pursue a career in paleontology. For my undergraduate research I worked on investigating morphological changes of brachiopods across an invasion event using 3-Dimensional modeling. I am excited to continue pursuing my career in paleontology at Georgia!
