Hello! In the O’Dea Lab, I will be working on assessing ontogenetic diet changes in Megalodon sharks. To do this, I will be working with postdoc Jess Lueders-Dumont to measure nitrogen isotopes in fossil Megalodon teeth from sharks of different life stages in order to determine if the trophic level of these sharks changed throughout their lifetime. In general, some of my favorite science topics include stable isotopes, gelatinous zooplankton, and baby marine animals.
