Area of Study: Palaeobiology

Alex was a Ph.D. student at the University of Oxford.  His research aims to uncover some of the fundamental seafloor processes associated with the evolution of complex animal life. 

Alex is a regular collaborator with our group, spending 3 study terms at Memorial, including field seasons on the Avalon and Bonavista peninsula studying the Mistaken Point biota and the Precambrian-Cambrian Boundary. He is currently holds a Fellowship at Cambridge, and continues to work on the Ediacaran of Avalonia.
