I am generally interested in the evolution and development of vertebrate body plans and the relationship between ontogeny and phylogeny throughout the evolutionary history of tetrapods. Currently, my research interests focus on the evolutionary and developmental biology of amphibians. I use an integrative approach that combines data from the fossil record and modern taxa to gain a better understanding for the evolution of developmental pathways and the acquisition of the derived morphologies seen in modern taxa. I received a diploma in geology/paleontology from the University of Bonn (Germany) and my PhD in Biology from McGill University (Canada). After a postdoctoral position at the University of Chicago, I returned to Germany to establish my own DFG Emmy Noether research group at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin. I am now professor for Development & Evolution at Humboldt University Berlin and the Museum für Naturkunde.
