Hi there! I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences here at Yale University. My dissertation explores evolutionary novelty and innovation in the locomotor and trophic systems of reptiles. I use a number of methods to address this subject, including morphometrics, 3D mesh manipulation, and embryological work.
