Biological Anthropology



I am a palaeoanthropologist who studies the functional morphology of the wrist and hand in extant and fossil primates. My research focuses on extant and fossil hominoids, including fossil hominins, to further our understanding of the origin of human bipedalism and hand use throughout our evolutionary history. I aim to understand functional morphology of this skeletal area through analyses of ontogeny, trabecular and cortical bone structure and the biomechanics of primate locomotion.
