I’m an evolutionary paleobiologist, currently based at Yale University. In January 2017 I will be moving to the University of Bath (U.K.) as a 50th Anniversary Prize Fellow. I study the evolution of modern birds using fossil, anatomical, and molecular data, but I have deep interests in many aspects of vertebrate macroevolution and diversity. I’m passionate about natural history and science outreach, and this site also displays my nature photography from around the world.
