Research Description

I am currently a postdoc with Jack Williams in the Center for Climatic Research and the Department of Geography at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am working with members of the NEOTOMA database team to integrate Late Pleistocene mammal and plant communities of eastern North America with paleoclimatic change to understand whether community responses are synchronous in space and time.

Specifically, I'm addressing several questions:

As part of this project, I am revising pollen core chronologies across eastern North America and gathering new dates on key mammal fossil deposits so that we can nail down the timing of key changes in the biological communities. For more information, see my website:
