Phil’s research focuses on two main aspects of palaeontology: understanding the evolution and relationships of the giant, herbivorous sauropod dinosaurs, and examining the impact of environmental variables (including climatic changes and the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs) on the diversity and distribution of vertebrates over the past 220 million years. After gaining his undergraduate degree in Earth sciences at the University of Liverpool, UK, he completed a PhD on diversity patterns in sauropod dinosaurs at University College London. Currently, he is a research fellow at Imperial College London, where he is working on a number of projects including examining patterns of survival and extinction selectivity in vertebrates across the Cretaceous–Palaeogene boundary.
