I am interested in exploring the catarrhine and hominoid fossil record through the use of rigorous systematic methods. My dissertation research focuses on Proconsul and the divergence between cercopithecoids and hominoids. I am interested in exploring both the tempo and mode of the diversification of catarrhines during the Miocene. I address these questions with phylogenetic methods and am therefore also interested in ways of applying systematic methods commonly used with molecular data to morphological data sets.
