Paulís research interests concern the functional, evolutionary and developmental bases of morphological variation. He has published over 100 papers, book chapters and reviews. 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.
