Research description: My research program focuses on the biomechanics of primate locomotion, specifically the relationships among the vertebral column, skull, and the pectoral girdle. Using comparative morphology and locomotor modeling, my research investigates the evolution of bipedality in the human lineage, as well as the historical patterns of positional behavior in living and fossil primates. Related areas of research include examining musculoskeletal plasticity in the vertebral column and how behavior and ontogeny influence adult vertebral morphologies at both the microscopic and gross levels.
