Biography

I am interested in the major evolutionary transformations within squamate reptiles (lizards and snakes), with a focus on both living and extinct species; some of the main topics I have been investigating involve the origin of snakes and that of mosasaurs. Other areas of interest include Phylogenetics, Systematics, Comparative Anatomy, and Zoology.
