?I am a Royal Society Shooter International Fellow working in the lab of Andrew Gillis at the University of Cambridge. My research interests lie in the evolution and development of the axial skeleton in jawed vertebrates. In particular, I study the development of vertebral column in cartilaginous fishes (sharks, skates, rays, and chimaeras) to understand how this segmented structure evolved across jawed vertebrates, and how different groups have invented their own unique vertebral morphologies.
