I am a fifth year graduate student working with Adam Maloof in the Department of Geosciences at Princeton University. My research utilizes field observations and quantitative three dimensional morphological analyses to understand when and where life emerged, how it evolved and the ways that organisms respond to – and alter – surrounding environments.

At Princeton, I have focused on using serial grinding and machine learning to produce three-dimensional models of fossils. Prior to graduate studies, I was a researcher at Situ Studio, where I primarily worked on the Forensic Architecture Project.
