Personal profile

Research interests

My PhD research revolves around understanding the diversification of Southern Ocean Seabirds. Using a suite of different morphometric, genetic and modelling techniques, I hope to better understand drivers and modes of macroevolution in seabirds and investigate ecological adaptions in the context of a rapidly changing environment. My background is in Palaeontology & Evolutionary Biology and I’ve worked on diverse taxonomic groups from Pterosaurs to Antelope and now to Birds. An ongoing thread between all my research projects has been understanding the evolution of morphological disparity and the connection to biotic and abiotic factors such as competition and environmental change.

My research is supported by the Evolution Education Trust.
