Alana Sharp is a lecture in anatomy at the University of Liverpool, UK. She received her PhD in 2015 from Monash University, Australia, on the cranial morphology and biomechanics of Diprotodon and other related extinct and extant marsupials. Her major area of research is in comparative anatomy and biomechanics across the vertebrate tree of life, and uses methods such as computed tomography (CT) based 3D biomechanical modelling, finite element analysis and virtual reconstruction. Her research aims to understand the relationships between form, function and evolution of the musculoskeletal system in extinct and extant taxa, specifically the function of the skull including sutures and cranial sinuses.
