Areas of Research

Paleoanthropology
The catarrhines are the group of primates that includes the cercopithecoid monkeys, apes, and humans. My research program is focused on understanding the evolution of these primates, in particular why monkeys and apes have such different adaptations, and how ancient environments have shaped those adaptions. The primary focus of my research is on understanding the environmental pressures faced by early catarrhine primates in East Africa. To do this, I study both catarrhine remains themselves, and other mammalian fossils found in association with primates. Currently, I conduct fieldwork in northeastern Uganda and the Turkana Basin in Kenya.
