Research Statement

I am fascinated by the natural history of the Earth and its inhabitants! I am broadly interested in how both abiotic and biotic processes have shaped the world around us and generated the incredible variety of both extinct and extant taxa. My research interests center on the evolution of marine invertebrate biodiversity, the processes that drive the origin and distribution of species, and how our understanding of these processes can be used to inform management and conservation strategies.
