I’m a PhD candidate in Stephen Gatesy‘s Lab in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Organismal Biology at Brown University and soon to be Donnelley Postdoctoral Fellow in Anjan Bhullar‘s Lab at the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies. I am broadly interested in how joints work, and my PhD dissertation focuses on the dynamic arthrology of the hindlimb in archosaurs (birds, crocodiles, and their ancestors). I received my Bachelor of the Arts with highest honors in Integrative Biology in 2016 from UC Berkeley.
