Research Interest

I am a biological anthropologist who studies the evolutionary history of the primate chewing apparatus. My research examines the links between anatomy and feeding ecology in modern mammals to provide a framework for using the jaws and teeth of extinct primates to infer the sorts of things that they ate. The major problem that drives my research is explaining why early members of our lineage had massive jaws and teeth, and why ours are so small.
