My current research focuses on the biomechanics and functional morphology of therizinosaurs, an enigmatic clade of theropod dinosaurs, found in Cretaceous deposits in Asia and North America. The project is funded by the German Volkswagen Foundation and jointly supervised by Dr. Emily Rayfield (University of Bristol) and Prof. Larry Witmer (Ohio University).
