Marta Vidal-Garcia

Postdoctoral Fellow


Research Interests

Marta is an evolutionary biologist whose interests stem from the relationship between form and function. Her research has been focused on identifying the macroevolutionary patterns that drive morphological diversity across clades, using various different vertebrate and invertebrate study systems. Recently she has expanded her research to understanding the developmental and genetic bases of phenotypic variation. Marta uses a combination of methods to answer these questions, including morphometrics, comparative methods, and machine learning approaches.
