My broader research interests include the emergence and diversification of complex animal body-plans throughout the Palaeozoic (541 to 251 million years ago). Using a combination of high-powered imaging techniques (such as micro-CT) I can virtually piece together the disarticulated remains of multi-element organisms to investigate their functional morphology, biology and relationships to other organisms. I will also analysis the rocks in which these fossils are found to interpret the past environmental conditions, providing context to the overarching evolutionary story.

Dr. Sarah Jacquet is now an assistant professor in the Geological Sciences at MU.
