I received my B.A. in Anthropology from Vanderbilt University in 2018. Much of my undergraduate research involved the dental microwear texture analysis of archaeological remains from the Wari Empire as well as modern capuchin monkeys from Costa Rica. Previously, I excavated early primate remains from the Bighorn Basin and early hominin remains from Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania. In the summer of 2019, I served as an intern for the Wyoming Dinosaur Center excavating dinosaur remains from the Morrison formation. As a doctoral candidate in Anthropology, I intend to focus my research on DMTA of non-human fossil primates to better understand primate dietary change in relation to climate change. Outside of academia, I am a diehard Mets, Jets and Islanders fan.

Research interests: DMTA of non-human fossil primates
