Some of my research has been ongoing for several years (turtles) and other is relatively new (mammals). Feel free to contact me regarding questions or collaborations.
Evolution and developmental constraints on morphological structure in rodents.
Shifts in the biogeographic distribution and population genetic structure in the past and present of microtine rodents in western North America.
Biochronology and biostratigraphy of Microtine rodents.
Mammalian tongue evolution.
Evolutionary morphology and phylogenetic systematics of fossil and extant testudinoid turtles.
Biogeographic distributions and ecological limitations of extant turtles.
Evolutionary morphogenetic models and predicting morphospace occupation and evolutionary trajectories in tetrapod vertebrates.
Understanding the mechanisms and patterning of odontogenesis in non-mammalian vertebrates
With a little help from my friends...
Research in natural history is a fundamentally collaborative world. I engage regularly with collaborators and most of my research questions involve collaboration. Find below a list of my collaborators and what projects they are contributing to.
