I am broadly interested in reconstructing palaeoenvironmental change using the faunal record, particularly at high temporal and spatial resolution. My research draws upon representation of indicator taxa in faunal assemblages, dietary reconstruction of via mesowear, and ecomorphological methods to investigate the tempo and mode of habitat change during key evolutionary and historical events – this has led me to conduct faunal analyses of Cretaceous-Tertiary deposits in North Dakota and Montana, Miocene deposits in East Africa, and archaeological sites in the UK and West Africa. My dissertation research focuses on the paleoenvironmental backdrop to the appearance of the earliest hominins, based on fieldwork in the Tugen Hills, Kenya.
