Blogozoic has a new home and it’s at Scilogs.com, an online science blogging network. So whilst it may be goodbye to this site for now, if you want to continue reading my ramblings on the awesomeness of fossils, follow the link below:
Thanks for joining me on whats been a really fun journey so far, and I hope to see you all over there at Scilogs.

I'm currently a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Postdoctoral Fellow at the Natural History Museum in London, where I'm living with my wife and son.
I class myself as both a biologist and a palaeontologist because I need to understand the living species in order to interpret the fossils. In doing so I have realised that there is an awful lot we don't know about the species alive today! This results in a lot of my research being biology rather than palaeontology, which is by no means a bad thing!
I am interested in the evolutionary history of marine tetrapods and aim to understand the anatomy, morphology and ecology of fossil species by comparing them to living animals. I use cutting-edge imaging and data visualisation techniques paired with both traditional comparative and more recent quantitative analytical methods. My current research is looking at the earliest members of the two living groups of whales, the mysticetes and the odontocetes, where I am investigating what drove the evolution of their markedly different auditory systems. I am a strong advocate of science communication to all age groups and enjoy informing the public about the wonders of the natural world.
