Introduction
My graduate research at the University of Saskatchewan is focused on understanding the depositional context of ceratopsian remains from southern Saskatchewan using trace fossils, sequence stratigraphy, and paleoecology. My undergraduate work focused on paleobiodiversity statistics from microvertebrate sites from southwest Saskatchewan. My other research interests include taphonomy, mass extinctions, and sedimentary geology.

Crocodyliforms were a common component of the latest Cretaceous floodplain ecosystem in north-central United States and southwestern Canada. Borealosuchus and Brachychampsa are the best represented taxa, known from numerous specimens, some of which are complete. “Thoracosauridae”, a group of gavialoid-like crocodyliforms are extremely rare from thi...

The latest Mesozoic rocks of Chambery Coulee in southwest Saskatchewan have offered insight into the paleobiodiversity and paleoenvironment leading up to the end-Cretaceous (K-Pg) mass extinction event. The late Maastrichtian (Lancian) Frenchman Formation, coeval with the Hell Creek and Lance formations in the USA contain a mixture of fluvial-flood...
