I’m a macroevolutionary biologist interested in questions about the processes that generate, maintain, and ultimately eliminate phenotypic and taxonomic diversity. I study both living and fossil species, mostly mammalian carnivores, to gain a complete picture of evolution in space and time. In fact, the name of this site comes from a quote by George Gaylord Simpson, who stressed the importance of considering data from fossil and living species when attempting to understand evolution.

I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago. On this site, you can learn more about my research and publications.
