The primary focus of my research is to understand the history and development of life using paleontological, sedimentological, and biogeochemical investigations of the ancient Earth. I am particularity interested in the Earth System and how the Geo- and Biospheres co-evolved. My research is inherently multidisciplinary and takes advantage of numerous analytical methodologies (both physical and virtual) which allows me to answer novel geobiological questions while easily collaborating across fields.
My research themes include:
· Early life/sediment interaction
· Trace fossils
· The Earth system
· Big Data questions
· Ediacara organism morphology/Bio-mechanics
· Taphonomic pathways
