My research interests lie in the large-scale macroevolutionary patterns and trends in the evolution of vertebrates. More precisely, I study the morphological diversity (i.e., disparity), complexity, ecomorphology and form-function relationships that characterise the evolutionary radiations that, subsequently, gave rise to the diversity we see today.
My vertebrate groups of interest have shifted through time from early synapsids, early vertebrates, marine reptiles and, currently, turtles. To explore their macroevolutionary patterns, I combine quantitative analyses (e.g., 3D geometric morphometrics) with comparative and phylogenetic methods.
