September 15th 2014 – Borja Esteve Altava, Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology

Borja Esteve AltavaI am a young theoretical biologist interested in the morphological evolution of vertebrates. In particular, how developmental processes determine the evolution of the head, as well as create evolutionary trends during the history of life. To study these questions I use abstract mathematical models, such as networks, and morphospaces to distinguish between impossible and possible forms, and analyze phylogenetic patterns of change in living and extinct animals.
