I am a biological anthropologist, fascinated by how differing social structures, mating behaviours and diets shape variation in the primate skeleton. I use 3D methods to quantify skeletal morphology to understand the underlying causes of patterns of variation in extant (living) primate skeletal assemblages.

I am particularly interested to understand how patterns of skeletal variation among extant primates are associated with aspects of their ecology and social behaviour. My second research stream seeks to understand whether advanced 3D shape quantification methods can be applied to the skull to distinguish between extant primate species.
