I work in the field of functional and evolutionary anatomy, with a particular emphasis on the application of novel imaging, computational methods and experimental models to investigate phenotypic plasticity and integration of the mammalian skull, ranging from structural mechanics through to the competing spatial requirements and functional demands of various soft-tissue modules (e.g. sense organs, brain, and masticatory musculature). The primary objective is to refine taxonomic, behavioural, biomechanical and ecological interpretations of extinct species with applications within the preclinical and clinical veterinary and human sciences. I am also director of the Human Anatomy Resource Centre. See also Research Gate and Academia.edu profiles.
