About me

I’m a Phd student in John Fitzpatrick’s lab, studying colour evolution. 

I am combining phylogenetic and experimental approaches to investigate how selection has shaped the tremendous diversity in animal colouration and patterns. In my current project, I am examining how distinct markings have evolved in Batoids, and what their function is.
