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. Currently, I am investigating questions concerning tail function and loss, adaptations to upright trunk posture, and the evolution of the hominin cranial base.
