Research Interests

I am a vertebrate paleontologist and specifically interested in fossil fishes and the following questions: - What animals have existed in the past and how did they get to where we find them (biogeography)? - How have marginal environments affected evolution and distribution of terrestrial fauna? - How have tectonic and climatic changes over time affected the radiation and distribution of taxa?
