If you are interested in graduate work on trilobites, phylogenetics, ontogeny and development, quantitative paleoecology, quantitative taphonomy, or any combination thereof, please feel free to contact me
. We are heavily field- and specimen-based, with new field discoveries helping to provide high quality original data with which to tackle long-standing phylogenetic and paleobiological problems. But we spend about half our time working on quantitative and analytical projects.
