My current research efforts are divided between macroevolutionary paleobiology and tradional field paleontology. With regard to the former, I am primarily interested in the evolution of large-scale morphological changes within the non-tetrapod Vertebrata, and the origination of higher taxonomic groups, i.e. classes, orders, and families. In particular, I am investigating how various constraints, developmental mechanisms, mass extinctions, and large scale geologic changes have affected the course of metazoan life throughout the Phanerozoic. With regard to the latter, I am performing systematic and taxonomic studies involving primarily chondrichthyan faunas from South-Central, Mid-Western, Southeastern, Mid-Atlantic, and Gulf Coastal regions of the US, and other localities globally.

Research statement:

  • Phylogeny and systematics of Mississippian Chondrichthyan Faunas from Kentucky, Indiana, and Iowa.

  • The origination and evolution of the Great White shark Carcharodon carcharias and its proposed Mako (Isurus) relatives.
  • The evolution of filter feeding within the elasmobranchs (traditional sharks and rays).
  • Patterns and processes of evolutionary convergence within marine vertebrates.
  • Statistical analysis of abundance and diversity of "fish" faunas from marine and freshwater bone-beds.
