Background and Interests

My research interests include all things marine, but my passion has always been echinoderms. I am interested in understanding echinoderm paleoecology and the connections between extinct and modern species. Although my interests vary, I am most interested in paleoecology, taphonomy, and predator/prey interactions in both ancient and modern communities.
