Research interests

Evolutionary Developmental Biology (EvoDevo), quantification of shape changes (e.g. during growth and development) using geometric morphometrics techniques, multivariate quantitative data analysis, biomedical imaging.
In my PhD project, I'll investigate comparative ontogeny of great ape and human pelves with implications for evolution of birth. Central questions such as developmental and functional modularity of pelvis, development of sexual dimorphism and concomitant changes in pelvic shape are investigated.
