Morphology@Manchester is the comparative morphology group at the University of Manchester, led by PI Katrina Jones. We study locomotor evolution in the mammalian skeleton and tease apart the impacts of adaptation and constraint during major ecological transitions e.g., origins of mammals, land-to-water, evolution of novel locomotor modes. We combine techniques from comparative anatomy and dissection, to morphometrics, biomechanics, and evolutionary modelling to understand the factors impacting morphological evolution and phenotypic diversity through time. The lab has a special focus on the axial skeleton, a critical but understudied component of the mammalian skeleton. Please contact me if you are interested in joining the lab or check out our current opportunities below.
