Evolution of Permo-Triassic mammal-like therapsid; Triassic biostratigraphy; ontogeny of the skull of living marsupials.
I am interested in the evolution of mammalness through the study of therapsid fossils, in particular advanced forms such as non-mammaliaform cynodonts and therocephalian. I also study biostratigraphical correlations of Triassic Gondwanan faunas and ontognetic changes in the skull of living marsupials.
