I am an evolutionary biomechanist and palaeontologist investigating the link between form and function in living and extinct vertebrates. I study the evolution of feeding and locomotion in a wide range of taxa - primarily fossil and living amphibians and reptiles, and early tetrapods - through medical imaging and 3D visualization, biomechancial modelling and experiments.

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Royal Veterinary College, part of the University of London.
