Research interests

My research spans the study of evolution from the perspective of the fossil record and other disciplines such as molecular biology.

I focus on invertebrate groups such as annelids and molluscs and test our ideas of their evolution and their fossil record with molecular biological techniques to obtain independent estimates of phylogeny and divergence timing.

I also have a particular interest in fossilization processes: Taphonomy. Currently I am working on the preservation of melanin in fossils and how we can use this evidence to reconstruct color patterns in feathered dinosaurs.
