Nicole M. Webb
     I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Graduate Center (CUNY) and a member of the 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 mammalian lineages.
     I employ a variety of techniques to explore these themes, considering both internal and external skeletal features. This includes the use of 3D geometric morphometrics and finite element modeling.
