Welcome to my personal website. I’m Alan Spencer and I am palaeobotanist working at Imperial College London. The main focus of my research is three-dimensional reconstruction of fossil plants, in particular their reproductive organs, with the aim of increasing our scientific understanding of plant evolution. This website features a collection of work that I’ve been associated with relevant information and links (e.g. to peer-reviewed papers). I hope to keep this as up to date as possible, so please pop back every now and again and see what is new.
