P r o f i l e

I am a doctoral student studying paleontology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. My research integrates several approaches to investigate the evolution and development of archosaurs, a group that includes crocodiles, dinosaurs, birds, and their relatives. I also write programs to explore theoretical and practical issues in shape analysis and evolutionary biology. Besides my role as a paleontologist, I am also an amateur musical composer and perform in the New Amsterdam Symphony Orchestra. My CV is available below. You can follow me on Twitter @akiopteryx.
