Broadly, I am interested in paleoecology and human evolution. More specifically I am interested in faunal analysis, ecomorphology, stable isotope analysis, taxonomy and systematics, taphonomy, and ArcGIS. I am a member of the Gona Paleoanthropological Research Project (GPRP) and Baringo Paleontological Research Project (BPRP) and have been working in the East African Rift valley since 2010. My dissertation research focuses on reconstructing the paleoenvironment during the Early Stone Age between 3-1 million years ago to search for patterns of environmental change and/or habitat use by early Homo through the Oldowan-Acheulian transition.
I am also dedicated to public outreach and science policy. I am an active member of the Yale Science Diplomats and work regularly with Yale Pathways engaging with the New Haven community about science at all ages.
