Simon Baeckens studies the evolution of morphological diversity in reptiles and examines how design relates to function. He focuses on traits that are ecologically relevant, including the communication system (incl. signal design and sensory apparatus) and the integumentary system (incl. skin surface structure and skin appendages, such as claws). In his studies, he combines a variety of experimental approaches in an explicit phylogenetic comparative framework.
