Research Focus:

 

My research involves understanding how mammal communities have changed through in the late Neogene and Quaternary. I am primarily interested in the effects of climate and humans on community turnover, and how other factors such as landscape topography modulates this change. I work on South and Southeast Asian, North American, and East African faunas. I am also interested in body size estimation in proboscideans and the taxonomy and evolution of Neogene and Quaternary proboscideans from South Asia.

I am currently working on a project to understand the impacts of global climate change on the biogeography of South Asian and East African large mammals in the late Neogene and early Quaternary.

As part of ETE, I am involved in a project exploring how changes in species associations through time affects the association of organismal traits such as body mass and diet.
