I’m an MS student at Indiana University Bloomington researching the relationship between the shape of arcus alveolaris and the size of dentes molaris throughout the hominin lineage, with a focus on the H. habilis-H. rudolfensis problem. My interests are Plio-Pleistocene human evolution, fossil reconstruction and morphology, and hominin phylogeny/cladistics. I have experience in excavation, curation, and preparation with Pleistocene fossils from Tanzania and the Great Plains, Jurassic and Cretaceous fossils from the Western US, and 17th-20th century artifacts from the Mid-Atlantic.
