Andy joined us in October 2014, having previously completed a BSc in Zoology at the University of Sheffield and a MSc in Palaeobiology at the University of Bristol. His MSc research focused on cranial functional morphology of the Triassic pseudosuchian archosaur Effigia okeeffae. He is applying a combination of phylogenetics, morphometrics, dental microwear, and finite element analysis to understand functional convergences between Triassic phytosaurs and modern and extinct crocodilians. His PhD is funded through the NERC CENTA doctoral training programme, and is co-supervised by Dr Ivan Sansom (Birmingham), Prof. Emily Rayfield (University of Bristol) and Dr Steve Brusatte (University of Edinburgh).
