Palaeobiology, systematics and sedimentology

My broader interests include the emergence and diversification of complex animal body plans throughout the Palaeozoic. Utilizing a combination of high-powered imaging techniques (such as micro-CT) I virtually piece together the disarticulated remains of multi-element organisms to investigate their functional biology and relationships to other organisms. I also combine field, petrographic and geochemical techniques to interpret the past environment in which these fossils are found, providing context to the overarching evolutionary story.
