For my research, I take an interdisciplinary approach to studying how phenotypes change in response to environmental constraints and how these changes give rise to complex social and biological identities within hominid species. I explore how evolutionary processes have affected human evolution by studying the origins of bipedalism, human post-cranial morphology and physiology, and human skull morphology.

Specifically, I am interested in investigating the evolution, biomechanics and physiology of the human breathing apparatus and thoracic morphology while researching diseases that arise due to ‘mismatches’ between modern humans and our rapidly changing environments.
