About Me

I’m an evolutionary biologist whose primary focus so far has been the study of plasticity-led evolution. I am also interested in paleobiology, morphometrics and evolutionary theory, particularly regarding conceptualizing organismal variation.

Currently I’m at the University of Texas at Austin working in the Kemp Lab studying the morphological variation and evolutionary radiation of the Anolis lizards.

I completed my masters and PhD at Uppsala University. For my master’s degree I worked with stem and crown group dynamics. During my PhD I developed and employed morphometric methods to quantify and analyse morphological variation in the fossil record in order to approach evolutionary concepts such as speciation, genetic canalization, genetic assimilation and plasticity-led evolution in a palaeontological context. I worked with Cambrian trilobite-like arthropods and helcionelloid molluscs.

I spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow at Lund University where I worked with Anolis lizards, mapping their morphological variation in order to understand potential underlying developmental bias and consequent plasticity-led evolution.
