I am postdoctoral researcher at Lund University (Sweden) where I study various aspects of development and evolution in reptiles, particularly in lizards. As part of my PhD research at Iowa State University, I examined diversity in morphological development in turtles. These efforts have led to several key findings concerning the origins of morphological diversity in turtles, including developmental underpinnings of the highly derived box turtle body plan. I am currently planning additional work on turtle evolutionary developmental biology, as well as functional and evolutionary morphology with collaborators in Germany.
