Research Interests: South American mammalian paleontology

My research is on the interplay between geography and climate on one hand, and species richness and adaptive morphology on the other. Specifically I am studying how primates, rodents, and marsupials co-vary with climate in South America. This involves both species richness data from field observations and specimen-based measurments of ecomorphology. Ultimately, the results obtained from modern faunas can be used to reconstruct the paleoenvironments of fossil faunas.
