About Lucas Legendre

My research focuses mainly on the evolution of biomineralized structures in extant and extinct vertebrates. I use histology, microscopy, and X-ray computed tomography to image and quantify microanatomical traits within these structures, as well as cutting-edge statistical methods to infer the functional constraints and evolutionary history of those traits in a phylogenetic comparative context.

I am currently a Research Associate in the Clarke Lab at UT Austin, working on the evolution of reptile eggshell microstructure, as well as the evolution of the syrinx in modern birds, among other projects.
