I am an anthropologist and evolutionary biologist. I study the behavior, ecology, and functional morphology of humans and nonhuman primates. My research philosophy is to integrate tropical fieldwork with mechanical, molecular, and isotopic analyses in order to better understand how and why adaptive shifts occurred during primate evolution.
