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 the evolution of carnivorous dinosaurs (particularly the origins of birds), laser-based fossil imaging and the evolutionary biomechanics of vertebrates (especially dinosaurs). Much of my work is focused on Chinese fossil material that I study with Prof. Xu Xing (IVPP, Beijing) and other colleagues.
