Research Interests

Eocene mammal diversity of North America with a particular focus on Wyoming and West Texas faunal communities - Specifically how to mammal communities in North America differ at a continental scale and a regional scale. How to communities in TX differ from those in WY? What patterns among environments do you see within WY Eocene mammal assemblages?

Early primate evolution and diversification - How do early primates adapt to their environments and respond to periods of climate change?

Sensory system evolution and sensory system variation among primates - Specifically focusing on how olfactory system morphology varies and relates to behavior among living primates. How can we use this to infer the behavior of extinct primates?

Respiratory system anatomy - How do the warming and humidifying respiratory structures found within the nose allow animals to inhabit their environment? Do these structures vary in animals that inhabit extreme climates?
