I am a palaeontologist investigating how fossils form and how soft-tissues fossilise.

The interplay between decay and geological processes are vital for understanding and interpreting ancient life and my research investigates this by using experiments.Picture2

I work on all sorts of fossil animals, ranging from polychaete worms, crustaceans, chitons, cephalopods, fish, amphibians and enigmatic creatures like the Tully Monster.

I’m also really passionate about outreach and science communication, especially if it involves palaeontology.
