Studying the diversity of animal weapons…

I am fascinated by morphological diversity, and my research aims to understand the selective pressures that drive (and constrain) the evolution of animal form.¬†Specifically, I study animal weapons, which are among nature’s most impressive and diverse structures. I am¬†first and foremost a behavioral ecologist, but my research integrates many disciplines, including functional morphology, physiology, biomechanics, ecology and evolution.
