PhD student, Monash University

I am interested in the evolutionary history of marine tetrapods and aim to understand the anatomy, morphology and ecology of fossil species via comparisons with living animals. I use cutting-edge imaging and data visualisation techniques paired with both traditional comparative and more recent quantitative analytical methods. My current research involves the earliest baleen and toothed whales, where I am investigating what drove the evolution of their markedly different auditory systems. I am a strong advocate for science communication and enjoy informing the public about the wonders of the natural world.
