Biography

I’m a multi-disciplinary vertebrate palaeontologist from HK. I earned a BSc in geology from UCL in 2006 before progressing to an MSc in geoscience (palaeobiology) in 2007. I pursued a PhD on ‘the evolution and biomechanics of dinosaurian tails’ with Profs. Paul Upchurch and John R Hutchinson (RVC) completing in 2012. My primary interests are in the evolutionary biomechanics of vertebrates, especially dinosaurs, and the evolution of theropod dinosaurs (including early birds). The latter is focussed on Chinese material that I study with Prof. Xu Xing (IVPP, Beijing) an example of which is Linheraptor from the Inner Mongolia Research Project.
