I am a Neukom Postdoctoral Fellow at Dartmouth College.

I leverage computational methods to meaningfully extend the fossil record. My research centers on discovering spatial relationships that reveal form, architecture, and organization. I use these findings to illuminate biological functions and sedimentary processes.

As a graduate student working with Adam Maloof at Princeton University, I developed a novel serial grinding and imaging pipeline to produce three-dimensional models of samples that lack density and/or phase contrast (and therefore cannot be reconstructed using non-invasive tomographic techniques such as X-ray computed tomography).

Prior to starting my graduate studies, I was a researcher at Situ Studio, where I primarily worked on projects involving human rights violations.
