My research explores the developmental mechanisms of morphological evolution.  I combine molecular techniques with methods from classic embryology to address how parts of the vertebrate skeleton acquire their particular shapes.  I have recently been using the toes of birds as a model to address how joints and cartilage interact during development to establish the relative size of each skeletal element.
