Research:

I am interested in vertebrate evolution and palaeontology. My research focuses on the evolution, historical biogeography, and palaeobiology of dinosaurs and their role in Cretaceous terrestrial ecosystems. Current research aims to clarify the evolutionary relationships and diversity of Late Cretaceous dinosaur groups (including hadrosaurids, ceratopsians, pachycephalosaurids and small theropods), and to evaluate patterns of dinosaur evolution and biogeography as they relate to environmental changes leading up to the end Cretaceous extinction event.
