I am a zoologist interested in the anatomy of animals - and how structure relates to behaviour. I have studied the diets and interpreted behaviours of ancient mammals, the anatomy of fossorial mammals, the vertebrate inner ear, and I am now working to better understand the biomechanics of the reptilian head using both classical and non-invasive imaging/investigative techniques.
As well as my academic work in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, I am a proponent of science communication (having worked in the Natural History Museum as a science communicator after my PhD), I held a British Science Association fellowship at the BBC in 2012, worked for the BBC Natural History Unit, and I now work with the children’s books publisher Flying Eye Books.
