I am a PhD student at Flinders University, South Australia. My current research involves investigating the early history of vertebrates by studying fossils. A major focus is using new techniques in imaging and computer analysis to reveal new aspects morphology and evolution. Originally from Northern Ireland, I began my studies at Cambridge University, where I studied the development of beetle excretory systems. I then moved to Australia and worked at the South Australia Museum on the evolution of reproductive systems in snakes and lizards, before starting my PhD across town at Flinders.
