Research Interests: I'm a vertebrate palaeontologist and I study the brain of fossil mammals. I used high-resolution X-ray micro computed tomography (CT) in order to obtain virtual endocasts (three dimensional models) of the brain and the inner ear. As a Postdoctoral fellow at the University of Edinburgh, I'm currently trying to resolve the mystery of how and why placental mammals (which give live birth to well-developed young) became so successful by reconstructing the neurosensory systems of our earliest ancestors.
