Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy research focuses on the origins and early evolution of macroscopic animal life and the changes to both the geosphere and biosphere during the Neoproterozoic to Paleozoic transition; specifically the Ediacaran Period (635-541 Ma). Due to the paucity of fossil evidence left by Earth’s earliest animals in deep time, I look to incorporate paleo- ecological, geochemical, and database analyses with studies of extant animal physiology to better understand the Ediacaran biostratigraphic record.
