Sarah Jacquet

Sarah Jacquet is a current PhD Candidate under supervision of Associate Professor Glenn Brock in the Palaeobiology Lab, Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science, Majoring in Palaeobiology and an Honours degree in Palaeobiology from Macquarie University.

Her research aims to better understand the early evolution and radiation of the Mollusca from the lower to middle Cambrian of Australia. This broad focus is channelled into various fields including biostratigraphy, palaeobiogeography, biofacies and taphonomy, all of which are founded on systematic analysis of many new fauna. Of additional interest is high fidelity preservation of phosphatised shell material that may help extrapolate information about body plan evolution and early ontogeny of both ancestral macro- and micromolluscs. Recently, her interests have expanded to the integration of micro-CT software and the reconstruction of multicomponent organisms.
