I am a PhD student working with Dr. Tom Tobin researching  sub-lethal repairs and paleopathology in Late Cretaceous ammonites. In ASIL, I analyze oxygen and carbon isotopes from powdered ammonite shell to help answer ecological questions about these extinct cephalopods. My research interests encompass invertebrate trace fossils, marine biomineralization, predator/prey interactions, molluscan paleoecology, and extinction mechanisms.
