Current Research

Current Work:

I am currently starting the second year of my Master’s at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln under Dr. Ross Secord in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. My focus is paleoecology and developing a multi-proxy model based on modern mammalian locomotor habit, diet groups, and body size to be applied to the fossil record. I have built a database of modern North American mammals with their corresponding body size, locomotion, diet, and observed habitats. Currently, I am working on building a model that will predict best-fit habitat of fossil sites using the modern data as a foundation.
