Research

    The overarching theme of my research is the evolutionary history of primates, particularly hominoids. My current research includes investigation of the development, homology, and phylogenetic significance of nasal and paranasal anatomy among primates and other mammals; description and phylogenetic analysis of fossil hominoids and other catarrhines from East Africa; and fieldwork in the early, Middle, and late Miocene of Kenya.
