Welcome to the web pages of the Nyakatura Lab. The lab focusses on the functional morphology and evolution of the vertebrates. We combine collection-based and experimental work in our integrated research approach. For most of our projects we collaborate with paleontologists, mechanical engineers, or experts in computer generated imagery. We additionally work on the historical and epistemic dimensions of image use in our field.
Please check out the research page to find out more about specific projects or visit the individual pages of our lab members. This site will also help you to find us right in the city centre of Berlin.
The Nyakatura Lab is currently funded by the DFG as part of the cluster of excellence "Image Knowledge Gestaltung. An Interdisciplinary Laboratory" (DZG EXC 1027).
