Laura Wilson is an Australian Research Council Fellow at the University of New South Wales, Sydney. Her main research interests are growth and development in mammals, and particularly the application and development of quantitative methods to study ontogenetic evolution on a macro-scale. She has a special interest in shape analysis (geometric morphometrics) and 3D modelling. She received her PhD from the University of Zurich, Switzerland. Before moving to Australia, Laura conducted research on evolution and development in squirrels during a postdoctoral position at Kyoto University, Japan.
