Summary

My research is concerned with the mammalian skull and how it has been shaped by both evolution and function. I am interested in how the forces generated by feeding can influence cranial morphology. I investigate these issues using techniques such as geometric morphometrics and finite element analysis. I am fascinated by all mammals, but my current research is particularly focused on the rodents, as they display unique and highly specialised adaptations of the teeth and masticatory muscles.
