I am a post-doctoral scholar in the Taylor lab focusing on Permian permineralized material from Skaar Ridge. Current projects include describing the spores of Merceria and a microsporangiate lycopsid structure.

My main focus of study is on the glossopterid seed plants, a clade that has no modern analog. My dissertation research focused on describing the reproductive material known of this clade from Antarctica.

Currently I am describing ovules to increase the known diversity of the group in Antarctica. I hope to expand my studies of the glossopterids to include material from across the Southern Hemisphere to determine latitudinal gradients.
