Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Functional Morphology Research Group. 

I study the evolution of morphological diversity in vertebrates and examine how design relates to function. I focus on vertebrate traits and systems that are ecologically relevant, such as the communication system (incl. signal design and sensory apparatus) and the integumentary system (incl. skin surface structure and skin appendages, such as claws). In my studies, I combine a variety of experimental approaches in an explicit phylogenetic comparative framework.
