I received my PhD in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley in 2004. I spent 7 months of an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship in Helsinki, Finland before taking a curatorship at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. I stayed at the DMNS until December of 2007 when I moved to Seattle to start in the Biology Department. I also serve as Adjunct Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology at the Burke Museum.
