Ph.D. candidate, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, University of Toronto

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Toronto in Canada. My doctoral research focuses on improving our understanding of the evolution of an early group of amphibians living in North America nearly 300 million years ago and that are widely thought to be the ancestors of modern amphibians. More broadly, my research is focused on the larger group of early amphibians (temnospondyls), which were globally distributed and around for over 200 million years! I have extensive fieldwork experience in the southwestern United States, particularly in Utah and Arizona, and have worked with a number of internationally recognized museums and the National Park Service.
