I’m passionate about wildlife, and this lifelong interest is reflected in my research program. My research addresses the evolution of vertebrate animals, with a primary focus on birds (although I have worked on many groups of animals, including whales, turtles, and horned dinosaurs). This involves reconstructing the pattern of evolutionary interrelationships amongst different animal groups, as well as studying the evolutionary acquisition of interesting biological features, such as bird flight. This work often employs a variety of data sources, including fossils, anatomy, and genetics.
