James is a vertebrate palaeontologist investigating the evolution of seals by looking at newly discovered fossils from Australia and New Zealand. These fossil discoveries can shed light on how modern groups of animals evolved, therefore challenging long-held assumptions regarding their biology and ecology. He's currently undertaking his PhD in the Adams Integrated Morphology and Palaeontology Laboratory (Monash), in conjunction with the Evans EvoMorph Lab (Monash) and Museums Victoria.
