Palaeoecology | Evolutionary Biology | Palaeo-metabolism
I am a palaeobiologist specializing in the study of macroecology and macroevolution. My research sits at the nexus of evolution and ecology, emphasizing the study of the biological, geological, and environmental processes that control the co-occurrence of groups of species. For example, why are groups of species typically found together in the fossil record and what does this tell us about the environments in which they lived and died?
I am currently a Professor in the Department of Geology at Northwest University in Xi’an, China. You can find out more about my career-to-date by accessing my Academic CV, reviewing my research foci or by looking at my teaching experience
