Dr Axel Newton

Axel completed his PhD in the Pask Lab examining the loci that contribute to convergent skull evolution between the extinct marsupial thylacine and placental canids.

Axel used a combination of geometric morphometrics to quantify skull shape, and molecular and genetic tools to examine the role of putative craniofacial candidates underpinning skull convergence.

Now, Axel is undertaking a post-doc in the Pask Lab continuing our thylacine research, and perusing his own research interests of skull development and evolution between mammals.
