Projects per year
I am a teaching-focused lecturer based in the School of Earth Sciences. I am the director of the Palaeobiology MSc and Palaeontology and Evolution BSc and MSci programmes. My research interests are in early animal evolution and exceptional fossil pereservation. A major focus has been on fossilized animal embryos from the Cambrian and lowermost Ordovician, as well as the embryo-like fossils from the Ediacaran Doushantuo biota. I use a range of techniques in this work ranging from experimental decay to synchrotron tomography.
