Senior Lecturer in Vertebrate Biology (Paleontology)

Liverpool, UK

I am a Senior Lecturer at Liverpool John Moores University, UK. My primary research focus is in interpreting dinosaur locomotion from fossil tracks, using computational techniques. My wider research interests include computational methods in palaeontology, digitisation (particularly open source photogrammetry), palaeoichnology, and biomechanics. Find out more at my website:


  • A computational analysis of locomotor anatomy and body mass evolution in Allosauroidea (Dinosauria: Theropoda)
  • Science Communication with Dinosaurs
  • Bird Tracks at the Hot Springs Mammoth Site, South Dakota, USA
  • Biomechanics of Dromaeosaurid Dinosaur Claws: Application of X-Ray Microtomography, Nanoindentation, and Finite Element Analysis
  • Digital imaging and public engagement in palaeontology
  • Reinterpretation of palmate and semi-palmate (webbed) fossil tracks; insights from finite element modelling
