Mr Steven Vidovic
During my childhood there was a resurgence of dinosaurs within popular science, the media, films and magazines. This sparked an interest that eventually led to my undergraduate studies at UoP; in Palaeobiology and Evolution. I graduated in ’09 and started a postgraduate research degree studying pterosaur morphometrics and its use in functional morphology, and cladistic relationships of the group. Currently, I also demonstrate and guest as a lecturer within SEES.
My current field of research involves developing new techniques for measuring fossil pterosaurs and using the results to extract data on their functional morphology and cladistic relationships. The aim of this research is to further formalise measuring techniques on bones and to rectify the group’s evolutionary relationships.
