I study paleoherpetology with a focus on the Quaternary. I am interested in understanding the response of herpetofaunas to past climatic changes and how this information can be used to inform modern conservation strategies.

To advance our ability to rigorously interpret the fossil record, I am interested in documenting osteological variation in extant species of non-avian reptiles and amphibians.
