Research Interests:Stratigraphy, paleoenvironments, sedimentary geology, vertebrate paleontology
I have been interested in dinosaurs and paleontology ever since I was a little girl. As I grew, my interest in dinosaurs spread to the rocks surrounding them, and how you can piece together the story from combining one's knowledge of rocks and bones. I started my journey at the University of Pittsburgh, obtaining a B.S. in geology and B.A. in anthropology. I then moved down to Texas Christian University to work on my Masters, where I worked out on the Rosillos Mountain Ranch near Big Bend National Park under Dr. Arthur Busbey. There I worked primarily on geologic mapping and stratigraphy. I am currently a PhD graduate student working at Drexel University under Dr. Ted Daeschler, and will be focusing primarily on the geology in the Morrison Formation.
