I am an evolutionary biologist and most of my research focusses on the evolution of morphological novelties in marine molluscs and other animals. My group asks questions about how adaptive and stochastic processes influence species lineages through deep time, to produce the extraordinary forms we see in living biodiversity. I use techniques in digital visualisation and 3D modelling to understand how strange and amazing species interact with their environments.
