Methods

I am using a wide range of imaging techniques (e.g., micro-focus X-ray tomography, synchrotron radiation, neutron-based tomography) and analytical tools (e.g., geometric morphometric) for non-invasively exploring the inner anatomy of fossil specimens. Additionally, I am contributing to the development of new methods for the quantitative analysis of complex anatomical structures, such as the endocast (e.g., deformation-based models, automatic sulci detection, see link).

Successive processing steps in the deformation-based shape comparisons (from Beaudet et al., 2016).
