Research

Research Interests

My major research interests are centred on the evolutionary palaeobiology of dinosaurs and other extinct amniotes. In addition, I am involved in projects to investigate macroevolutionary mechanisms, the evolution of Mesozoic terrestrial ecosystems and potential biases in the fossil record. Research is concentrated in three main areas:

  • Pattern and process in macroevolution. Controls on dinosaur diversity through time; testing of plant–dinosaur co-evolutionary scenarios; clade-clade interactions; correlated progression; influence of the rock record on dinosaur and pterosaur diversity.
  • Functional morphology, palaeobiology and palaeoecology of herbivorous amniotes, principally sauropodomorph and ornithischian dinosaurs.
  • Taxonomic, systematic and faunal revisions of dinosaurs and other extinct reptiles (including lizards, plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs) from the Middle Jurassic and Early Cretaceous of the UK, the Lower to Middle Jurassic and Early Cretaceous of the People’s Republic of China, the Lower Jurassic of South Africa and the Cretaceous of Australia and Antarctica.

Research group

Research group

My research group includes a mixture of post-doctoral and post-graduate researchers, who work on dinosaurs and other extinct reptiles and amphibians. This work is primarily supported by external grants (from NERC), together with some internal Natural History Museum and university funding. 

Current group members are engaged in projects on:

Dr David B. Nicholson (NERC-funded Post-Doctoral Research Assistant)

Dr David B Nicholson

David’s work aims to provide a comprehensive analysis of chelonian (turtle, tortoise and terrapin) palaeobiodiversity and distribution through time. Time series analyses of these patterns, along with statistical methods to control for biases relating to sampling and preservation of the fossil record, will be used to elucidate any potential connections between significant events in chelonian evolutionary history and major episodes of global environmental change. With a long history beginning in the Triassic over 220 million years ago, and a high preservation potential leading to their exceptionally common occurrence as fossils, chelonians are an excellent model system for studying the biotic response of cold-blooded vertebrates to long-term environmental change. It is hoped that this work will help inform conservation efforts of chelonians in the face of the modern biodiversity crisis.

Dr Charlotte Brassey (Natural History Museum-funded Post-Doctoral Research Assistant)

Dr Charlotte Brassey

My major research themes are the functional morphology and hind limb biomechanics of extant and extinct amniotes. I have a strong interest in modelling of the musculoskeletal system using finite element analysis (FEA) and multibody dynamic analysis (MDA). Additionally, my work involves the estimation of body mass and segment inertial properties in extinct species using 3D volumetric techniques. More broadly, my research highlights the importance of sensitivity analyses and the application of appropriate modelling techniques in the field of vertebrate palaeontology and physical anthropology. I am currently working on a project that involves 3D and CT scanning of various dinosaur specimens in the Museum collections. We hope to gain new insights into feeding, locomotion and life-history by carrying out soft tissue reconstructions, biomechanical analyses and histological analysis.

Rosie Barnes (NERC Open CASE-funded PhD student)

Rosie (2008–) splits her time between the Museum and UCL, where she is co-supervised by Dr Paul Upchurch. Her work concerns the evolution of titanosaurian sauropod dinosaurs with particular focus on producing a new phylogeny of the group incorporating all currently known titanosaur taxa. Rosie is also interested in the evolutionary history of the group and their biogeographical distribution through time, as well as critically assessing taxonomy. A current project is the redescription of the type material of a European dwarf titanosaur (Magyarosaurus) held in the Museum collections, with colleagues from Romania and the USA. Rosie is currently employed as an editor at Nature Publications Group (rosie.barnes@ucl.ac.uk).

Matthew Baron

 

Matthew Baron (NERC CASE-funded PhD student)

Matthew Baron (2013–) is working on a NERC CASE funded project at the Natural History Museum/University of Cambridge (Christ’s College) where he is co-supervised by Dr David Norman.

His work concerns the ornithischian dinosaurs, particularly their origin and the evolution of their unique anatomy. 

The project involves the study of specimens of basal ornithischians and basal dinosauromorphs from the Triassic and Early Jurassic, from localities around the world (mgb46@cam.ac.uk).  

 

Sam Bennett (Self-funding PhD student)

Sam (2010–) is based at the Natural History Museum and Royal Holloway, University of London (co-supervised by Prof. Margaret Collinson). He is interested in Mesozoic marine reptiles and his area of study is ichthyosaurs. His project uses morphometric techniques such as Principal Components Analysis and Reduced Major Axis Regression to analyse changes in sizes and shape. Using this, a method of estimating relative age of individual specimens, regardless of size, is being established (Sam.Bennett.2009@live.rhul.ac.uk).

David Button

David Button (NERC CASE-funded PhD student)

David (2011–) is working on a NERC CASE funded project at the Natural History Museum/University of Bristol where he is co-supervised by Dr Emily Rayfield. He is utilising finite-element modeling and other techniques to investigate the functional range present between the crania of different sauropod taxa and the implications of this upon their feeding behaviour and ecology. 

These results will be combined with a review of cranial arthrology of the Sauropodomorpha in consideration of the evolution of feeding-related characters within the clade (gldjb@bris.ac.uk).

Fiona Jones

Fiona Jones (Graduate Intern)

Fiona (2013–) is an intern at the Museum, having just completed a degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Oxford. For her final year research project she examined the evolutionary relationships between members of Trigonotarbida, an extinct order of spider-like arachnids. This involved using the SPIERS software suite to create three-dimensional virtual models of trigonotarbid fossil specimens, and using PAUP to perform a morphology-based cladistic analysis of the group. 

She is currently working on an anatomical description of an ankylosaur braincase, as well as assisting other members of the group with their research.

Collin VanBuren (Gates Foundation-funded PhD student)

Collin (2013–) is split between the Museum and the University of Cambridge, where he is co-supervised by Dr. David Norman. He is interested in functional morphology, comparative phylogenetic methods, and conservation palaeobiology.

Collin VanBuren

His work will examine the effects of climate change on amphibians using a variety of techniques, including niche modelling and diversity curves through time, to understand how factors related to climate change have affected past amphibian communities throughout the clade’s evolutionary history (cv300@hermes.cam.ac.uk).

 

 

Amy Waterson

Amy Waterson (NERC funded PhD student)

Amy (2013–) is working on a NERC-funded project based at the Natural History Museum/University of Bristol where she is co-supervised by Dr Daniela Schmidt and Prof. Paul Valdes. She is interested in the long-term response of biota to global environmental change. 

Her research aims to provide a deep-time perspective on potential links between climate and chelonian diversity and distribution during the Mesozoic and Paleogene. She is applying niche modelling techniques, analysing palaeoclimate proxy data and interrogating general circulation model outputs in order to elucidate the environmental constraints on chelonian diversity dynamics over extended evolutionary timescales (amy.waterson@bris.ac.uk).

Simon Wills (Self-funding PhD student)

Simon Wills

Simon (2012–) is based at the Museum and co-supervised by Dr Charlie Underwood at Birkbeck,University of London. His work concerns the investigation of microvertebrate archosaur faunas from a number of sites in the British Jurassic and Cretaceous. Simon is focussing on the Middle Jurassic sites of Hornsleasow (Gloucestershire), Watton (Dorset), Kirtlington and Woodeaton (Oxfordshire), and the Lower Cretaceous of the Isle of Purbeck (Dorset), concentrating on the dinosaur fauna from these sites that remain largely undescribed. 

He is interested in the use of isolated dinosaur teeth for taxonomic discrimination purposes (including the potential application of Geographical Information Systems) and palaeoenvironmental and palaeoecological studies. Simon retains an interest in Historical Geology with a recent biographical publication on the palaeontological research of John Whitaker Hulke.
