Katrina Jones, postdoctoral researcher

I am a Presidential Fellow and Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Manchester. I am interested in the anatomy and evolution of the mammal skeleton, particularly the vertebral column. Before starting at Manchester, I conducted an NSF-funded postdoctoral project investigating the evolution of the spine in the synapsid forerunners of mammals at the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University. I completed my PhD in Functional Anatomy and Evolution at Johns Hopkins University and a Masters in Earth Sciences at the University of Cambridge.

Dr. Julia Schwab

Postdoctoral Researcher My research focuses on getting a better insight into evolutionary transitions by using vertebrate anatomy and morphology to link it with locomotion, habitat and lifestyles.

Dr. Cat Strickson

Research technician I am a vertebrate palaeobiologist looking at functional morphology and evolution of locomotory transitions. My current interests are: morphological convergence in cursorial mammals, and heteropody in sauropod dinosaurs.
