Gaylord Donnelley Postdoctoral Associate
Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies
Paleontological Research Institution
I'm a postdoctoral associate in Earth & Planetary Sciences and Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science at Yale University and a research associate at the Paleontological Research Institution. I received my B.S. from the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University in 2015 and my Ph.D. from the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at the University of Pennsylvania in 2020. I study the influence of predation on the evolution of mollusk shell shape over geologic time. In addition to my research, I am dedicated to educating students about how science is conducted using earth science as a gateway, particularly those from outside of the STEM subjects.
