Degrees:
M.Phil, CUNY Graduate Center

B.A., Baylor University

Additional Study: Due to complete Ph.D. Fall 2008

Interests:
The evolution of ontogeny and life history as reflected in hard tissue microstructure; mammalian and early primate evolution.

Research description
By visualizing dental anatomy through light and electron microscopy, detailed growth histories of people and animals can be charted and compared across species/populations to access information on how life history has evolved and how it is impacted by social behavior and ecology. My research focuses on this dental histology approach to ontogeny and life history, mainly in primates.

Other research interests/projects include early primate fossils (with a focus on the origins of monkeys and tarsiers as a group), the use of 3-D digital modeling to study anatomical structures, and the relationship between general biological rhythms and hard tissue growth.
