Chris is a lecturer in evolutionary biology from the University of Hull (UK). His research focuses on understanding large scale patterns and processes underlying phenotypic evolution across organismal groups. His research utilizes phylogenetic trees of both extant and extinct taxa, and involves understanding, assessing and developing phylogenetic and comparative methods.
