Investigación

My research lines have been chiefly concerned with aspects of the evolution of Miocene-Pliocene Carnivora. Areas of particular interest include the functional anatomy and systematics of several groups of carnivorans, and their relationships with their palaeoecology. Current activity centres on the functional anatomy of the postcranial skeleton of felids, mustelids, amphicyonids and ailurids, and its relationships with locomotor adaptations; the systematics and phylogeny of the earliest forms of sabre-toothed felids, as well as felines, amphicyonids, ailurids and mustelids; the palaeoecology and evolution of Eurasian Miocene three-toed equids (genus Anchitherium and Sinohippus); studies on the intracranial cavities and structures of fossil and extant carnivorans using CT Scan; and the anatomical and functional aspects of the development of the sabre-toothed felid model.
