Emma is a palaeobiologist and her research focuses on how past environmental change influences the biodiversity and evolution of terrestrial vertebrates (tetrapods). Her current research project, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, focuses on how past climate change impacted the evolution of dinosaurs and their kin throughout the Mesozoic (251–66 million years ago). Emma is also interested in the physical and human biases that underpin the data we use for palaeodiversity and evolutionary analyses.
