Research Interests:

I am a student in the Ivany lab and I’m currently interested in Marine Invertebrate Paleobiology and Biogeochemistry. My research questions ultimately center around evolution of extinct cephalopods and paleoenvironment reconstructions using sclerochronology and biogeochemical analyses.
