Academic Title(s)

  • Associate Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology


I received my Ph. D. in Anthropological Sciences from Stony Brook University in 2008. Prior to my current position at NEOMED, I completed a postdoctoral research fellowship with Dr. Liza Shapiro at the University of Texas at Austin. Research in my lab focuses on evolutionary, comparative and developmental aspects of mammalian locomotion. Our work is question driven and is currently concentrated on two topics: the biomechanics of arboreal locomotion, particularly in primates, and the interaction between musculoskeletal growth and locomotor development.
