Welcome to my personal website, I’m Alan Spencer and I’m 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 if you are interested in my work then please pop back every now and again and see what is new.
