Paleontologists are people with a passionate curiosity about
the history of life on Earth and what it can tell us about the world tod
ay.

The focus of this website is the evolution of vertebrates.

Craniomandibular system in rabbits

In contrast to wild lagomorphs, pet rabbits exhibit a noticeably high frequency of dental problems. Although dietary habits are considered as a major factor contributing to acquired malocclusions, the exact causes and interrelationships are still under debate. In this regard, an important aspect that has not been considered thoroughly to date is the effect of diet-induced phenotypic plasticity in skull morphology. [read more]

Vertebrate evolution

My special field is vertebrate paleobiology. Animated by my passion for bones, I have always been fascinated to draw all the secrets from skeletal remains. Therefore, I apply a holistic approach integrating quantitative shape analyses, EvoDevo and functional morphology to understand the evolution of vertebrates. [read more]

Research focus: evolution, function and develoment of the vertebrate body plan.

VertEvo CB

Mein Spezialgebiet ist die Paläobiologie der Wirbeltiere. Meine Faszination für das Skelett motiviert mich, Knochen ihre Geheimnisse zu entlocken. Hierfür verfolge ich einen holistischen Ansatz, indem ich Morphologie, EvoDevo und Biomechanik integretativ anwende, um die Evolution der Wirbeltiere zu verstehen. [weiterlesen]

Forschungsschwerpunkt: Evolution, Funktion und Entwicklung Körperbauplans der Wirbeltiere.
Mit VertEvo möchte ich auf aktuelle Ergebnisse aus der Wissenschaft aufmerksam machen und Einblicke in meine Forschungsarbeit geben.

German Palaeontological Society

Tilly Edinger Prize

PalGes_Logo_gelb-frei_verklThe Tilly Edinger Prize of the German Palaeontological Society has been awarded to me, acknowledging my work on Hox genes and the evolution of the vertebral column in archosaurs.

I thank all who supported me in various ways throughout the years!
Thank you very much!!
