Biography

Accepting both MA and PhD students for Fall 2020.

I am a biological anthropologist whose research centers on morphological variation in recent humans and the evolutionary, cultural, and developmental mechanisms that have produced it, as a means of understanding the processes of hominin evolution and adaptability in general. My main approach to this research is through analysis of functional anatomy and skeletal biology in humans, using both traditional osteological methods and 3D modeling of the skeleton.
