I am an evolutionary biologist focusing on the origins of marsupial mammal diversity. My research has included phylogenetic comparative analyses on the diversity and development of the marsupial body to explain why there is so little morphological diversity in this group. Currently, I am most focused on using geometric morphometric analysis to investigate if marsupials are also limited in their more immediate (lifetime or population-level) ability to adapt to changing environments.
