Since 2005, I have been a faculty member at Ohio State Newark, where I teach undergraduate courses in human anatomy. Before that I taught at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine of New York Institute of Technology (1996-2004), including three years as anatomy course director, and at SUNY Stony Brook while I was a graduate student. As a vertebrate paleontologist and morphologist, I have published on a wide range of topics including descriptions of new mammals of Cretaceous and Paleocene age, studies of mammalian tooth diversity, and analyses of mammalian biogeography. My students have pursued projects in systematics, functional morphology, and analytical paleontology, depending on their interests.
