Research Interests РEvolution and Embryos 

We study evolution and embryos in the context of development and organogenesis, tetrapods, skeletal morphology, adaptation, coral reef fishes, and marine ecology. Field and laboratory, comparative and experimental, theoretical and empirical, on land and under the sea – we ask questions of nature to try to understand how biological diversity arises.

  • Stage-specific embryo risk across vertebrate clades
  • Developmental bias and plasticity in evolution
  • Vertebrate skeletal development and evolution
  • Evolution of damselfishes
