Ecology, Evolution, Environment & Society (EEES) Graduate Student

I am a biological anthropologist and functional morphologist with interests in how the properties of food items (including isotopic, mechanical, sensory, and temporal) inform us of the ways diet has shaped primate evolution. I am particularly interested in how diet has influenced the evolution of foraging strategies, habitat use, and skeletal morphology. I focus on living primate species and communities but apply my findings to interpreting behavior and ecology in the non-human primate and hominin fossil records.
