Hugo Dutel's research interests deal with the morphological evolution and adaptation of vertebrates.
His research work since completing his PhD has focused on form / function relationships in the cranial system of living and extinct vertebrates.
Hugo's approach encompasses paleontology, comparative anatomy and embryology, as well as functional morphology and biomechanics.
He is currently working on a BBSRC-funded project that aims at investigating the role of soft tissues in the skull biomechanics of mammals and reptiles. For more information, please visit his website.
