I am interested in the relationships between form, function, and morphological evolution. My work focuses on seed plant reproductive structures and integrates data from the paleontological record, experiments in living analogues, and phylogenetic analyses in order to understand how the various functions that reproductive structures perform have driven patterns of morphological change. In addition, my work also includes several field-based paleobotany projects focusing on fossil floras from eastern North America, New Caledonia, and Mongolia.
