Welcome to my website! I am a functional morphologist and evolutionary biologist broadly interested in how ecology shapes morphological evolution in vertebrates. I am
particularly interested in cases of convergent evolution between animals that share similar ecologies. My past and on-going
research has focused on using micro-CT scanning and natural history specimens to unravel macroevolutionary trends in fish feeding morphology and body shape. While I am
an ichthyologist at heart, my research spans across several major groups of vertebrates as I also work on the ecomorphology of anole lizards and have plans to
studying salamander limbs and their water to land transition. Currently, I am a PhD student at the George Washington University under the advisement of
Dr. Sandy Kawano.
