I am interested in the evolutionary history of marine tetrapods and aim to understand the anatomy, morphology and ecology of fossil species by comparing them to living animals. I use cutting-edge imaging and data visualisation techniques paired with both traditional comparative and more recent quantitative analytical methods. My current research is looking at the earliest members of the two living groups of whales, the mysticetes and the odontocetes, where I am investigating what drove the evolution of their markedly different auditory systems. I am a strong advocate of science communication to all age groups and enjoy informing the public about the wonders of the natural world. Contact: [email protected] [email protected]
