About the Project

PhD research in the lab of Dr. Katrina Jones investigating macroevolutionary patterns in mammalian locomotion. The lab uses a combination of quantitative shape analysis, biomechanics, and macroevolutionary analyses to understand major transitions in the evolution of mammals and their extinct relatives. Research topics of interest include the origin of mammalian locomotion in non-mammalian synapsids, the evolution of cursoriality, the terrestrial-aquatic transition in mammals, and methods for quantifying evolutionary patterns in serial structures.
