I received my B.S. in Geology at Louisiana State University. My research is in the field of shark paleontology. My interest in paleontology began in Florida, when I started collecting fossil shark teeth on the beach, so it seems fitting that fossil sharks became my area of research as a graduate student. My master's thesis is a morphometric study of modern and fossil shark teeth, analyzing shape variation in teeth to help resolve the evolutionary relationships of fossil shark species.
I decided to attend Tulane because I have family in the area, because New Orleans is a cool place to live, and because Tulane is an academically respected college with a beautiful campus. My goal after graduation is to pursue a Ph.D. in vertebrate paleontology.
