Research Summary
My principal field of interest lies in primate phylogenetics and morphological adaptation. Specifically the phylogenetic, ontogenetic and functional significance of morphological and molecular variability, among various species of primate. I am particularly interested in using data generated from this type of study in biogeographic analyses in order to reconstruct patterns of speciation in SE Asian primates. More recently I have extended my biogeographic work to include conservation biogeography, with a focus on the role of environmental change, particularly climate change, on species diversity and success.

My museological research involves the role of touch in the heritage context, exploring the value of object handling for knowledge transfer, wellbeing and enjoyment.
Teaching Summary
I currently teach on BIOL1006 Evolution, Dvelopment and Biodiversity, BIOL2009 Animal Form and Function and BIOL2002 Fieldcourse in Environmental Biology. I also teach and organise BIOL3018 Vertebrate Life and Evolution.
