Dr. Phil Cox new co-Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Anatomy
Phil Cox is a comparative functional anatomist with particular research interests in the evolution of the mammalian skull and the biomechanics of feeding. His research encompasses both living and fossil mammals (often focusing on rodents) and includes methodologies such as gross dissection, medical imaging, virtual reconstruction, statistical shape analysis and biomechanical modelling. Phil undertook his PhD at the University of Cambridge before moving to the University of Liverpool to carry out postdoctoral research, where, with Dr Nathan Jeffery, he helped to pioneer the technique of diceCT (diffusible iodine-based contrast-enhanced computed tomography). He is currently a Senior Lecturer in Anatomy at the Hull York Medical School and Department of Archaeology, University of York, UK.
