Research Interests

My research interests are at the intersection of stable isotope paleoecology and environmental/biodiversity conservation. I have a particular interest in how human land-use change/urbanization has affected the extinct and extant flora and fauna of the now industrialized urban ecosystem.


My current projects focus on:

The Late Pleistocene Megafauna Extinction, and the climate during these continental events

Synanthropy through time, including invasive species interaction
