Research interest and expertise:

  • mammal evolution
  • functional morphology of mammalian dentitions (especially insectivorous and carnivorous mammals)
  • reciprocity between phenotypic adaptations and natural selection (evolutionary plasticity vs. constraint; convergent vs. divergent evolution)
  • methods of virtual paleontology (computed x-ray tomography; reconstruction of 3D-Models; photogrammetry)
  • SEM imaging
