Gabriele Sansalone


I am a vertebrate paleontologist and evolutionary biologist specializing in the use of quantitative shape analysis, phylogenetic comparative methods and finite elements analysis. My work is focused on understanding the adaptation and evolution of subterranean mammals, but also spans to the feeding biomechanics of birds of prey, brain shape evolution and skull integration in primates as well as the feeding biomechanics in marsupial and placental carnivores.
