Mr Steven Vidovic
I am a vertebrate palaeontologist, anatomist and systematist, currently working on archosaurs. My Ph.D. research was on cladistic methodologies and overcoming the limitations of morphological data for pterosaurs. Specifically, I developed methods to best represent morphology to a computer and to compare similarity/difference between evolutionary tree topologies. I have broad training and interests in Earth and Environmental Sciences, with an emphasis on geology and natural history. Since the completion of a BSc in Palaeobiology and Evolution at the University of Portsmouth I have gathered a wealth of experience including lecturing, public outreach, organizing an international conference, producing peer reviewed publications, managing journals’ editorial.
My current field of research involves developing new techniques for representing morphology to inform analyses (cladistics) of evolutionary relationships (phylogeny).
