I am a palaeobiology PhD student, part of the Vertebrate Palaeontology Research Group based at University College London (UCL) led by Paul Upchurch.  I specialise in palaeohistology and am a member of the Bloomsbury Centre for Skeletal Research and the Bone Research Society.  My doctoral research is in collaboration with the Steinmann Institute at Bonn University.  


I have a passion for dinosaur bone histology, my Master’s research thesis was ‘Histology of an Ankylosaur Pelvic Shield from the Lower Cretaceous, Isle of Wight’ and I'm currently looking at the connection between fossil bone histology and taxonomy in dinosaurs.
