Faculty Mentor: Chris Beard
Research Interests: phylogenetics and biogeography of two new species of early mammals (Family: Paromomyidae) from the Eocene of Arctic Canada. I am also interested in how these paromomyids adapted to the unique environment present in the Canadian Arctic during this time which represented a warm temperate ecosystem with polar light cycles
