Vertebrate Paleontology, Stratigraphy




As a Curator of Paleontology at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, I am conducting a research program focused primarily on Late Cretaceous and Paleogene vertebrates. My research includes an active field-based program centered on the San Juan Basin of northwestern New Mexico.

This research includes participation from Museum Volunteers, undergraduate students, and graduate students. I have especially worked to include Native American, the most underrepresented group in the geosciences, and especially those from the Four Corners Area.
