Research interests

I am an evolutionary biologist with experience in molecular and developmental biology and palaeontology. I use techniques from experimental taphonomy to high resolution CT scanning, to answer questions about the veracity of the fossil record; and molecular biology to look at gene expression patterns and gene sequences for phylogenetic analysis.
