From Development to Deep Time

We use 3D imaging, high-density geometric morphometrics, evolutionary modelling, phylogenetic comparative methods, and fieldwork to elucidate the many complex intrisic and extrinsic influences on the evolution of organismal form, from development and ecology to mass extinctions. By directly linking data from embryos to fossils, we bridge traditional gaps in biology and work across diverse organisms, presently including all vertebrate and arthropod groups.
