Manabu Sakamoto

I'm yet another palaeontologist at the University of Bristol and I study the interrelationships and functional morphology of carnivorous dinosaurs. I am particularly interested in the feeding mechanics of these fantastic creatures. Recently, I have also gained interest in the feeding mechanics of modern predatory animals, especially the monitor lizards. (Monitors actually have teeth that are similar in shape to predatory dinosaurs, so they may serve as pretty good analogues…).

I am an anatomist as well - my study involves a lot of dissections of modern relatives of dinosaurs, the birds and the crocodiles. After detailed studies in these animals to determine which muscles are present and where and how these muscles attach to bones, I can reconstruct the same muscles in the extinct dinosaurs to a certain degree of confidence. I can then use these muscle reconstructions to estimate the forces working on the jaws.

I am also a cell biologist – or used to be…I used to study surface molecules in T-cells as an undergraduate student. Surface molecules are crucial in recent studies like stem-cell research. When stem cells differentiate into different kinds of cells, gene expression is not the only regulatory factor; cell-to-cell interactions through surface molecules are equally important.
