About Fabien Lafuma

I am a PhD candidate at the University of Helsinki (Finland). I study the evolution of teeth in squamates and mammals through the lens of phylogenetics and developmental biology. I am particularly interested in combining extant and fossil data to reveal macroevolutionary patterns of phenotypic evolution.
