Research

Interests

My main research focuses on the morphology, systematics, ecology and evolution of Bryozoa.

I  have related interests in the palaeobiology of colonial animals, palaeoecology of hard substrates, fossil symbioses, invertebrate macroevolution and biomineralization, as well as the folklore of fossils.
