Research Summary

My research interests explore human morphological adaptations and the mechanisms which drive phenotype variation throughout the life course in evolutionary and archaeological contexts. Currently, I am investigating the process of long bone growth and development and cranial morphology. In particular,  how environmental impacts shape human adaptation and biomechanics. Additionally, my research focuses on health and disease processes on past population dynamics and investigating these relationships through survival probabilities. I am also interested in digitization techniques for collection preservation, teaching, research and heritage sectors.
