The Functional and Comparative Anatomy lab (FCA) at the University of Manchester seeks to understand the impact of adaptation and constraint on the evolution of the mammalian skeleton. We combine techniques from comparative anatomy and dissection, morphometrics, biomechanics, paleobiology, and evolutionary modelling to understand the factors impacting morphological evolution and phenotypic diversity through time. Previous work has focused 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.
