Summary

My research focuses on studying evolution using disparity analyses and comparative phylogenetic approaches. I am interested in the evolution of morphological variation in vertebrates, extinction events in Earth's history, shape analyses, the diversification of life through time and numerical methods. 

In my research I have studied the evolution of marine reptiles, crocodilians, dinosaurs (including birds), fish, and squamates (scaled reptiles).
