I am a quantitative palaeobiologist and evolutionary biologist by training. My research focuses on integrating palaeontological and neontological data sets in an effort to understand the biology and ecology of extinct organisms. I combine specimen-based research in museum collections (both palaeontological and zoological) with database mining and fieldwork to test macroevolutionary hypotheses of the origin and maintenance of morphological diversity through time and across clades.
