Summary

I am a multi-disciplinary vertebrate palaeontologist from Hong Kong. I pursued a PhD on ‘the evolution and biomechanics of dinosaurian tails’ with Profs. Paul Upchurch (UCL, UK) and John Hutchinson (RVC, UK), completing in 2012. My primary interests are in the evolutionary biomechanics of vertebrates, especially dinosaurs, and the evolution of theropod dinosaurs (including early birds). The latter is focused on Chinese material that I study with Prof. Xu Xing (IVPP, Beijing).
