In November 2017 Dr. Alice Clement received a Vice-Chancellor’s Award for an Early Career Researcher.
Alice works on early vertebrate evolution especially early tetrapods and their closest fish relatives. In particular she has been re-constructing brain morphology using endocasts of the braincases of fossil lungfish (Sarcopterygii: Dipnoi) in comparison with extant lungfish. She was the first to produce the first virtual endocast of any lungfish published, in this case Rhinodipterus kimberleyensis, from the Late Devonian Gogo Formation of Australia.
