I am a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Royal Belgian Institute of Sciences (Brussels, Belgium), currently on secondment to Monash University and Museum Victoria (Melbourne, Australia).
My main research interests are the biology and evolution of marine mammals, especially cetaceans (whales and dolphins). I am particularly fond of baleen whales - the largest animals that ever lived. My previous work has focused on reconstructing the baleen whale family tree, the environmental and biological drivers behind cetacean evolution, marine mammal feeding, swimming, and the description of new species. Together with Olivier Lambert and Mark Uhen, I have also written a textbook on whale and dolphin evolution: "Cetacean Paleobiology", published by Wiley Blackwell.
