Prospective undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdocs: please feel free to contact me regarding opportunities to join my research group.


I’m an evolutionary palaeobiologist at the University of Bath (junior tenure-track faculty). I study the evolution of modern birds using fossil, anatomical, and molecular data, but I have deep interests in evolutionary questions across the vertebrate tree of life. I’m passionate about natural history, evolution, and science outreach, and enjoy studying and photographing Earth’s vertebrate biodiversity in the field.
