My areas of professional interest include humanism in anatomy education, pre-professional anatomy outreach, and metacognitive training.


As an evolutionary and comparative anatomist, I am interested in the biological basis of skeletal traits. My current research focuses on the Anterior Cruciate Ligament of the knee in humans, primates, and other mammals as well as its proximate structures, including its entheses and the lateral meniscus.
