Meet Safiyyah Iqbal, a Functional Morphologist specialised in digital analysis!

Safiyyah is a PhD student at the Evolutionary Studies Institute (ESI) situated at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa. She focusses her research on understanding the form related to the function or vice versa of prehistoric species. This allows her to expand her abilities by studying a variety of species in different environments.  During Safiyyahs research at the ESI, she underwent training on the microCT scanner and helped advice the Palaeontology honour students working with GM methods.
