Research Interests

I am interested in the evolution of Miocene catarrhines, with an emphasis on the paleobiology and paleoecological context of stem Old World monkeys. My research uses dental functional morphological approaches and faunal analysis of mammalian communities to better characterize the evolution of this diverse and ecologically flexible clade of primates.

Broadly, my research interests include paleoecology and macroecology of Cenozoic mammal communities, primate paleobiology, and dental functional morphology.
