Nicole M. Webb


I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Graduate Center (CUNY)/ New York Consortium in Evolutionary Primatology (NYCEP). My research focuses on postcranial  functional morphology and the evolution of bipedalism in hominins. I study the pelvic anatomy of a broad range of mammals to explore the functional requirements associated with the independent acquisition of bipedalism across different lineages.
   My research employs a variety of techniques including finite element analysis, 3D geometric morphometrics and trabecular bone assessment.

    I am currently a guest researcher at the Senckenberg Research Institute and Natural History Museum in Frankfurt, Germany.
