I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Stony Brook University. My research focuses on the functional morphology and evolution of the primate axial skeleton. I emphasize comparative, evolutionary, and developmental approaches, and employ a variety of morphometric techniques. Much of my research focuses on questions concerning tail function and loss, and adaptations to upright trunk posture and bipedal locomotion.
