I am interested in the systematics, taxonomy, morphology, and evolution of fossil and modern Australasian birds. My research focuses on the origins, evolution, and diversity of passerines, which make up over half of all living birds. I work on fossil passerines and am a member of the Bird 10,000 Genomes Consortium.
In 2020 I joined Flinders University as an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellow. I am currently based part-time at Flinders and part-time at the Australian Museum in Sydney.
