Senior Research Fellow in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, University of Adelaide
I am an evolutionary biologist, interested in understanding how the Earth's biodiversity came to be. In 2011, I completed a PhD at the Natural History Museum, London, on a group of cryptic amphibians called caecilians. They are limbless, head-first burrowing animals, and I used museum-based collections and cutting-edge imaging techniques to investigate how their skull evolved.
Since then I have held research appointments at institutions including Harvard University, Australian National University and University of Adelaide. I have studied a diversity of animals including rabbits, bivalved scallops, lizards, frogs and their tadpoles, and sea snakes. I am an expert in the statistical analysis of organismal form, a software creator, and a passionate educator.
