Paulís research interests concern the
functional, evolutionary and developmental bases of morphological
variation. He has published over 100 papers, book chapters and
The aim of his research programme is to explain how different
skeletal morphologies arise and function during evolution in terms
of developmental processes and functional adaptations. In turn, the
results inform the study of fossils.
The key underpinning technologies with which I am actively engaged
are morphometric, especially geometric morphometric methods, CT
imaging, scanning electron microscopy and modelling approaches such
as Finite Elements Analysis and Multibody Dynamics Analysis.

evolution unit website.
