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.

I also conduct research on the influence of the brain and other cranial features on the shape of the skull in a variety of different mammals.

Both of these fields of research are set within the context of human evolution and interpretation of the human fossil record.
