I am a Canadian vertebrate palaeontologist (yes, I do have a backbone) involved in research on dinosaurs and other extinct monstrosities in Beijing, China. A particular focus of my work is functional morphology, the study of the relationship between anatomical structure and mechanical function. Ecologically, I am a mainly nocturnal omnivore with a small territory and few natural predators.
