My research profile combines evolutionary biology and vertebrate morphology. For my PhD I focused on the evolutionary aspects of diet in relation to vertebrate herbivory. More recently, my postdoc project explores the skull and brain anatomy of combative bovids, in order to better understand their relationship to traumatic brain injury, and how to translate our findings to humans.
