Current ResearchMy interests lie mainly in marine biology and paleobiology. My research has involved species level taxonomy and morphologic trends in Neogene strombid gastropods of the Dominican Republic. I am also interested in the ecology of reef environments (both modern and through time) and the evolution of various invertebrate body plans.
I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 1999, with a double major in zoology and geology. I have continued my graduate studies here under the guidance of Dr. Dana Geary, and have served as teaching assistant for Evolution and Extinction, a course in evolutionary biology offered by the geology department.
