I am a theoretical biologist with a background in physical anthropology, evolutionary biology, and statistics. I have worked on the development of geometric morphometric and multivariate statistical tools to explore patterns of phenotypic and genetic variation. My primary theoretical interest is in the quantification of concepts in evolutionary developmental biology. My empirical research has focused on the evolution and development of human and primate morphology, including applications to orthodontics, but I have also worked on other animals, including mice and several fish species. Furthermore, I am interested in the philosophy of biology and statistics. 

I am teaching morphometrics, statistics, theoretical and evolutionary biology at the University of Vienna and the University of Graz.
