About Simon Baeckens

Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Functional Morphology Research Group. 

Broadly trained as an evolutionary ecologist, Baeckens' work seeks to elucidate the constraints and drivers of phenotypic diversity in lizards. By combining a variety of experimental approaches in a phylogenetic comparative framework, he tries to unravel the functional and adaptive significance of the observed variation in design, ranging from visual and chemical signals to skin surface morphology.
