I am especially interested in establishing a new state-of-the-art 3D imaging centre.
My research uses morphological and process-based approaches to address problems in evolution and development. We apply x-ray micro tomographic imaging (micro CT) to a variety of research areas, including comparative embryology, functional morphology, systematics, and morphometric studies.
Developmental morphology of model and non-model species at histological resolutions.
Histological resolution of intact samples in 3D.
