I am a postgraduate student studying vertebrate palaeontology, supervised by Roger Benson. I focus on systematics and evolution of ichthyosaurs, a group of fish-shaped Mesozoic marine reptiles. Methods applied in my research include comparative anatomy, phylogenetic reconstruction and quantitative inference of patterns of morphological evolution. My postgraduate research is fully funded by NERC. I am also involved in fieldwork in the Middle Jurassic of the Isle of Skye, Scotland. Previous fieldwork experience includes the Late Triassic of Southern Poland and East Greenland.
