PhD Candidate
Philip Lai

Phil is interested in structure and function in the pectoral girdle and forelimb along the line to mammals. He plans to combine in vivo kinematics, ex vivo manipulations, geometric morphometrics, and musculoskeletal modelling to investigate the determinants of posture and locomotion ability. By probing the interplay between the soft and hard tissues of the forelimb locomotor module, Phil hopes to inform reconstructions of non-mammalian synapsids and shed light on the trends that led to parasagittal stance in the mammalian lineage.
